[toot] [toot]

I entered a crocheted afghan and a crocheted shawl in the San Mateo County Fair. They were both displayed (I think they display everything they get, unlike some fairs) and the shawl won a second-place ribbon.

The large crocheted afghan class had a lot more entries than last year. (The main reason I decided to display mine, despite its not being the tidiest example of crochet ever, was that last year there weren't many entries in the class and what was there was kind of plain. I wanted to spice things up a bit.) The entry immediately above mine (you can just see the fringe) had a great dinosaur graphic on it and it won a deserved ribbon.

I couldn't tell what other items were in the "other" crocheted apparel category because they were scattered all over the room rather than displayed in one place. My item was displayed with a quilt (in the background) and items from several other categories.

Oooh, you won a ribbon!

That settles it. Next year, for sure, I'm entering knitting in our county fair.

Congratulations (and that shawl is gorgeous)!

It's a lot of fun. Maybe a wombats outing could be organized next year.
