Last week was the county fair, but I didn't enter anything since I was gone when the entry forms were due. I was pleased, however, that one of my knitting friends won the Championship prize for her beaded shawl. Everyone who passed the table was in awe of the workmanship. Congratulations, Julie!
Julie's winning shawl was from the 2009 Year of Lace program. She entered all of them in the fair. This plum shoulder shawl is my favorite.
This red circular shawl (it is folded in half) was Julie's favorite to knit. I missed taking a photo of her green rectangular shawl, but you can see what it looks like here.
Julie liked making these four shawls so much that she enrolled in the 2010 Year of Lace. I'm sure she will enter them in next year's fair.
