Another August, another field trip to the Missouri State Fair.
After a delicious and nutritious meal, we made a beeline for the home ec building.
Look! Ribbons! Hooray hooray!! Silvana won in the sweater category, with this beautiful fair isle Ivy League Vest.
We couldn't find my Peacock Shawl for a while, then DH spotted it in a totally different display case.
Yay yay yay! A blue ribbon for the shawl category and a purple rosette for "best in knitting" division!!
I am super excited! And grimy from the long ride. But more excited! Here I am excitedly gesturing at my name on the "Wall of Winners!" Unfortunately my body/arm is not quite winningly long enough; I am pointing about a foot below my actual name. No matter, it's such an awesome idea, a giant sign saying "wall of winners"--everyone should do this at home!
So that's 2 for 2 for our knitting group! I'll let the good news soak in for a day or two, then share the rest of the many pictures from the fair next time.
