Going to the Fair

It's that time of year again.For the second year in a row, Girlie has submitted her raspberry freezer jam to the Washington County fair. Her brothers are in awe of their multitalented big sister and just had to get right in there and see everything she was doing.
Girlie's mom also submitted raspberry freezer jam and some knitting to be judged. One is a cotton face cloth, seen blocking below in the lower right hand corner (details to follow in a later post).
The other is a pair of socks (called Gull Wing Socks) that the very talented Cindy designed. I "borrowed" this image from her blog. The yarn is Stitch Jones in the Secret Touch colorway. The socks are knit on size 0 Addi's, using the magic loop method, which is by far my preferred method of knitting socks. You can find pattern details on Cindy's blog or over on Ravelry.

We will be going to the fair this weekend to see if any of our submissions earned any ribbons. I always get a little tickle in my tummy when we walk into the exhibition booths and search for our entries. Will it have a white, red, or blue ribbon, or any at all?

I'll be sure to let you know.

Wish us luck!

I think it's great that Girlie is doing her very own submissions! That's awesome! Good luck to both of you! I can't wait to see the ribbons this year. :)

Can't wait to see what you win. Thanks for the comments on my posts. I hope we both do well in our respective fair. Thankfully the Coos County fair is small and the competition is not that tough. :) You know the old wooden buildings that the animals were always in? They got a new fair director and tore them down this year. :( We are all very sad. So for this year they are using circus tents and then the rumor is that they will put in steel buildings. What a bummer. It really takes away from the feel of our small county fair.
