My Ribbons!!

I picked up my County Fair winners yesterday. Here is a pic of them all together.

I know my photography is bad (poor lighting) but dark colors do not photograph well. :( The top two are my first place (blue ribbon) winners.

County Fair Ribbons

Wow! I just got back from our County Fair and my four entries won four ribbons!!! I'm so motivated to make more. My blanket ( ) won 1st Place in the Crochet Non-clothing Division and I won 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the Crochet Clothing Division. All three are my original patterns. Vertical Rib Sweater was 3rd and I have yet to post the other two.

I'll be picking up my entries on Sunday and will take pictures of them with their ribbons.

My Clapotis

Last fall I discovered the Clapotis from Fell in love with it! Here is my version. I made it with size 9 needles and Patons SWS in Natural Earth.
