County Fair Countdown

I never found anyone to take my county fair items and drop them off. It is just as well---my knitting friends might be tempted to sabotage my entries! Ha ha. I called the superintendent and she said I could just drop them to the county fair office before I leave on vacation. I have 10 days to get everything finished. Here is what I entered:


1. Bird in Hand mittens. I am about 70% finished with these.

2. Project lincoln top (I hope this is okay, Wendy!) done and ready to go

3. Lizard Ridge afghan. I think I'm going to blog about this on I Made it Myself Saturday. It is all seamed up and even has a flannel back on it now.

4. Green bunny. I still need to give it a mouth. Other than that--it is ready.

Sewing (I'm branching out, here!)

1. Baby shoes. I'm going to make another pair of baby shoes in some girly fabric.

2. Bird ornament. I don't know if I ever took a picture of the one I made for Wendy's birthday. It is the one on the cover of this book.

3. Tote bag. I'm making a small knitting project bag. I'm kind of winging it so I don't know exactly what it is going to look like yet. Fun stuff.


  1. WOW!!! Good luck on your items. Glad you found someone who could help you out with vacation and all. I'll be watching your entries. :)

  2. You scare me with your abilities! I'll cross my fingers that you will win lots of fabulous prizes.

  3. I want to knit Bird in the Hand mittens! Kate lives in my hometown (the designer!)

    And I'm dying to make those booties too (sewing!)
