Report From the County Fair

I'm very surprised--I won three ribbons! One of each. The sweater that I really thought might win had too much competition in that category and didn't win any ribbons.

Some of us rode lots of rides! LOTS of rides.

A good time was had by all!

Fitted Knit #4

The Short-Sleeved Ribbed Cardi from you-know-what-book. It's kinda hot to think about sweaters, but this was a very enjoyable knit and I love this yarn--Cascade 128. I will surely find other reasons to use it very soon. I bought the dichroic glass buttons at my LYS and the owner, Aylin, helped me choose them herself. You really can make or break a garment with the buttons, don't you think?

I am doing the sleeves on both the Thick N' Thin Cardigan Coat and the Two-Toned Ribbed Shrug, two more fitted knits. If I complete them, that will be 6 patterns made from one book. That is definitely a record for me.

In a fit of bravery (or stupidity) am entering four items into our County Fair tomorrow. Wish me luck! My goal is just to win an honorable mention as I've only been knitting for 3 years.

What I Did on My Summer Vacation

We had fun at the Land of Little Horses:

Comfy beds at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in between:

And at my family reunion:

My cousin, Earl, is 95, bowls in the Senior Olympics and still plays in a band! Go, Earl!
