So it seems there’s a week coming up in which you pick one of the days and it’s Knit in Public day. There are plenty of them out there all over the place, but I’m unsure there are any near me. I don’t want to try to plan anything, but I figure next week will be a good way to knit in public every opportunity I get. I might even start on Saturday, who knows. I think this is a great way to get people to see each other and meet other knitters and crocheters. Yes, I realize it’s not Crochet in Public day, but since I’m truly a crocheter at heart, I’ll never exclude.
And as someone who’s taught many friends both, crochet is almost always easier to teach than knitting… but that’s only in my experience.
Onto other news. The Colusa County fair kicked off yesterday, but the fair entrant judging for the Arts and Crafts was something earlier in the week. I turned Mirella the Bunny and Girasole in last Friday.
Yesterday I was informed that Mirella the Bunny got 1st place. Mind you, she was the only doll entered into the fair, which makes it seem as though I’d be give the 1st place prize by default. From my fair contact person (a lady I work with) this is not the case. The judge this year had no qualms about giving out 3rd even if it was the only entrant in that category.
The bigger news is the Girasole I finished a little bit before Xmas won Best in Show!! This is BIG news for me. I would never expect a prize like that!! I’m so excited and can’t wait to enter all of my items into the Yuba-Sutter fair and see how I do.
Wow. Best in show. And to think, I only really started knitting a couple of years ago, with Girasole being my first circular knit item, and my first lace item. I have no pictures of Girasole, because I’m lame and not very smart. When I get everything back I will be sure to take some photos.
