Fair Results

I entered 13 items in the County Fair: some in Open Class and some in Fiber Arts. Open Class entries could be made with any type of fiber; however, the Fiber Arts entries required a natural fiber content.

Open Class entries, ribbon and premium awarded:

Spring Violets Vest - blue ribbon - $6
Baby Surprise Jacket - blue ribbon - $6
February Socks - blue ribbon - $6
Vintage Doily - blue ribbon - $6
Holiday Apron - blue ribbon - $6

Fiber Arts entries, ribbon and premium awarded:

Reader's Wrap - red ribbon - $5
Fraternal Twin socks - red ribbon - $5
Rainbow socks - blue ribbon - $6
Headband - fourth place - $3
Sky Scarf/Cowl - fourth place - $3

It was fun to enter items in the fair that I made throughout the year and win some money, too: the premiums will allow me to enhance my yarn stash.

  4. Great job! That does add up to a nice bit of cash. I know you were so excited with the rosettes! When my daughter was still home back a few years ago, we baked and entered the fair. I think she did better than I did, so that was kind of fun.
