This years 'fair-time' fun has been another 'done good' year...
Come check out the 2011 Skagit County Fair, if you got that kinda gas money... I live close, so it works for me.
Yes let's not forget you get a ribbon just for participating, thank you, that's my 'fish tale' scarf,thank you, thank you, thank you...um ouch, that hurt a little. But they did hang it wrong! Hello! Let's move right along to Melissa's beauty...Rock Island... it rocked(sorry), with a "Blue ribbon" and "Best of Class" lovely job! And yes I did recieve a "Blue ribbon" and a "Best in Class" also for my Skagit Valley vest...ooh ahh, I love that vest.

But the "Best Of Show","Best of Class", and a "Blue ribbon".... the best of them all!!!~goes to~ drum roll please...

congradulations Melissa for another fabulous scarf!!! It is beautiful!

(Sorry about the crummy picture it was hard to get a good shot.)

Hers were locked up in a glass case. Mine of coarse was sitting right out there for someone to take.

We have a fun time knitting, ribbons or not, it's just icing on our "cakes of knits."


  1. Nice work all around! And thanks for posting pics! I wasn't able to get to the fair this year, and I was really sorry I didn't have a chance to check out the competition!

    (I entered a pair of green-on-white Selbuvotter mittens which earned a red ribbon and a white rosette for "Reserve Best of Class," whatever that means!)

  2. I just stumbled on to your blog...what inspirations you both are!! Thanks for sharing your knitty road thru life. Is it possible to get the pattern for your vest? I would love to give it to my sister as a present. You can email me here... stonepine at mindspring.com

  3. Congratulations, ladies! Beautiful work:)

  4. Hi Lorna,
    I found this amazing vest pattern in the Verena, Winter 2009-2010, knitting magazine. It's a great pattern and fun to knit.
