Fair Entries 2017
These are some of my ribbons won this year at the Erie County Fair. I entered 13 things, earned nine blue ribbons, 2 red (2nd place) and 2 honorable mention. This is the best I have ever done. I didn't include all of them because I posted them previously. Sorry for so many pictures but I couldn't get all of them in one picture.
My 4th Hitofude
...Only three female family members to go....
This is my booth I set up at the local Cornfest this last weekend. It was a great weekend and a lot of these items have now gone to their forever homes. These are all Gypsycream patterns which I love. Now I need to fire up my needles to replenish my stock for a show the beginning of September.
This one is for me!
This is Dee O'Keefe's Wilshire Shawl. I used approximately 850 yards of Hand Maiden Fine Yarn: colour is silver, 50% silk/50% wool.
How large is everyone's yarn stash? Mine just recently increased dramatically! The only local yarn store that was close enough to go to by myself, just recently closed. I am so sad about that, but I think I purchased most of everything she had!

My friend's twin daughters are off to college this week -- one to Syracuse University and one to University of Wisconsin. I knitted them each a scarf -- my first time using duplicate stitch.
Another BSJ finished
I had some leftover Bernat Pops yarn from my previous sweater. Couldn't let it go to waste. Added some colours I had in my stash. Hope to sell this in my craft show in the Fall
Shoulder shawl and scarf
This yarn for the shawl was clearance priced, but the color was so great to go with an orange dress I have.
