Oh my. Gratified!

One County Fair.

Nine knits.

Nine blue ribbons. The happy contenders?

The Trekking Socks.

The Fingerless Gloves of Olympic Knitting Fame.

The pink shrug from last Christmas.

The pink Top Down hat, also from last Christmas.

The Isis Wrap, from last December as well.

The first ballband MDK warshrag.

The first MDK Baby Genius Burp Cloth.

The Lacy Kerchief Scarf, aka Magda LittleLace.

Branching Out, aka Megan LittleLace.

And the pears? They did okay, too.

Now it's on to the State Fair for almost all the knits, except for the Baby Burp Cloth (no category that I could find for it) and the Top-Down hat, and Moira LittleLace will take Magda's place in the knitted shawl/stole category.

There have been years when I couldn't get a blue ribbon to save my life. I think I'll keep up with this knitting thing, it seems to work well for me.

Thanks for all the support you give. The on-line knitting community really is the best!

When is the state Fair?

Which do you think deserves another ribbon? Can it have it's own post with the ribbon you just won?
