I had three entries prepared for this year's county fair. The Tibetan Mastiff 3-ply from last fall, the Yak single from last month's Tour de Fleece and my finally finished Alpaca Wrap.
All three were awarded ribbons. Two blue and and one red. :-) The red was second place to myself, since both of my yarns happened to be the same class.
Along with 1st place, the Tibetan Mastiff won a special award from one of my favorite local shops.
Along with first place for it's class, the Alpaca Wrap won Best in Show for Knitted Items!
OMG! I was really just hoping for some useful comments.
So while each of the yarns had some deductions, the wrap was given a perfect score!
The judge said the wrap was "simple but striking." Exactly what I was going for.... I'm just over the moon with my very first finished object entry. :-D
Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
