Tim and I headed over to the Lane County Fair yesterday evening to check on our entries...and we did pretty well: five entries, four ribbons. My market squares tote won a blue ribbon in the felted/fulled division, and it cracks me up how it was displayed with the blue ribbon sweater.
The big loser was my cabled hat...it is the maroon one in the bottom right hand corner. It has a cabled body and a knitted crown, and was up against a better-knit cabled hat (the yellow one) and two fair isle hats. It is sad that it didn't win but that's life at the fair.
