I got a second place ribbon for my Dr. G's Memory Vest! - Yippee!! This was my first cabling attempt... I'm very proud!
My snowflake sweater got third place - I entered it into the handknitted sweater category... equally as proud - although the armless drag queen they have it displayed on is cracking me up! (99% of the way things were displayed was impeccable... items grouped by color... theme... whatever - and I was having a difficult time wrapping my head around the work involved in setting the exhibit hall up - but that 1% turned out some funny things... and the "drag queen" installation was one of them) - it's OK though... just having it on display (and placing!) is wonderful!
I also got 3rd place in the Men's Knitting Competition - it was fun to participate and I already have some ideas of what I want to enter for next year!
This was the first time I had entered any of my knitting in any contests... so the fact that I placed in every category makes me happy! I highly suggest that everyone participate in the fairs.... walking around and seeing all the amazing work - from quilting to needlepoint to knitting and crochet.... I was overwhelmed with ideas and inspiration!
(and of course, going to the fair means getting to pet the animals!! :)
