This is the first garment I have ever knitted. It won Third Place.It was supposed to be for youngest DGD but I had to keep ripping it out and starting over. And now she is five!!!!! I will probably offer it for sale at my guild show in March.
This apron won a Blue Ribbon at the Howard County Fair, but nothing at the state fair. There were a lot of entries. The critique was that they (judges) loved everything, but the gathers weren't perfectly spaced.
And here was my surprise!!! My wool saltbox table mat won a Blue Ribbon and Viewer's Choice!!! This is the first time I have ever won a Viewer's Choice Award! I would like to thank everyone who voted for me:)
My other items you have already seen pictures of in previous posts. So here are my stats for this year: Howard County Fair: 6 items, 5 ribbons, $18.50.
Maryland State Fair: 8 items, 5 ribbons, $32.00.
I have already selected my wool project for next year, plus I have some quilts to finish for next year as well! Please share your fair experiences with me as I love to hear them. Have a great day!
