State Fair Results 2016

Yesterday was the first day of the Minnesota State Fair so the results are in for all the creative activities competitions. I entered two knitting projects this year and both of them get a ribbon!
My husband convinced me to enter my Mitten Garland Advent Calendar. There really is no category for this type of thing, so it goes into Hand Knitting: Not Otherwise Specified, Not Wearable. What a surprised to see a took first prize.

And of course, there were my Pride and Prejudice mittens.
They only took 4th place. I have to say I love the pattern, but I struggled a bit with the knitting. The Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud yarn I used it soft and gorgeous and the perfect colors, but I’m not sure it showed the stitches as well as the judges would like. I’ll be interested to read the comments when I pick them up.

    • What can anyone say but congratulations Kat!!!!!!! The surprise here would be if you didn’t walk away without a ribbon. Your patterns are fantastic but it is YOUR knitting that takes it over the top. The work you produce I have never seen anyone else come close to. Again congratulations!

    • Congrats! So glad your garland took first place! Now when I finish and gift my garland I can say it is an award winning pattern! The mitts are really delightful!

    • Glad you entered your garland and got a blue ribbon. But I can’t understand how they gave you only 4th place on your mittens. Surely they could see all the work you put into them. Keep knitting, we all know how great you are!!!!!
