Hi everyone! This weekend I entered 10 items in my county fair! I had entered 3 years ago and haven't since....so, last night was the opening night...I had to go check out the "competition"! LOL!

 

Some of the items I entered are:

 

My Moorish Mosaic afghan:

Also, Snowflake pillow, Chroma striped scarf and Cabled mittens posted on my Ravelry page:

I also entered 2 pair of knitted socks and a hexagon baby blanket that I strangely don't have pictures of! Will have to take care of that after the fair!

 

These get judged on Wednesday. I won't be back to fair until Friday...will keep everyone posted!

I love that moorish mosaic pattern (knowing full well I'd never have the patience to make one)--rooting for that one, especially, to win a well-deserved prize. Your hexagon bags are beautiful, too--prize or no prize, everyone who sees them will be green with envy.

Beautiful work. I wish we had local fairs like that here. I love seeing hand made work.

Wow those look awesome!! I hope you win :) What fair is it? I live in Erie... I went to my first county fair last year at the Crawford County Fair and I loved seeing all the crocheted/knitted items and quilts :)

Thanks everyone for the nice comments.

 

Jillkap, it's the Oneida County Fair in Boonville, NY...we are about 1 1/2 northeast of Syracuse.

Your Moorish Mosaic afghan is gorgeous - as is the South Bay Shawlette. I'm thinking you will be going home with some ribbons. Lovely work!

Hi everyone.....just wanted to update...I won 10 blue ribbons for my work!!!! And a grand total of $60! The entry fee was $6 lol!

 

I am so glad I entered this year. Last year I didn't, and the turn out for crochet was dismal....not that it wasn't nice items....just not much.

 

Off to see what I can buy with my winnings!

How awesome is that! :cheer

 

I took a peek through your Ravelry "craft room" and you have some super projects in there. I love both of the Moorish Mosaic afghans you did and the Chroma scarf striped perfectly! Really, everything looks great. TFS-:hook

Thank you all for your nice comments....It was a blast getting recognized for all my work! I urge all of you to enter your local fairs....It is such an ego booster!

 

Still deciding what to spend my winnings on....I'm sure it will be crochet/knit related!

 

Thanks again everyone!
