Knitter Bunny's™ Dutch Rabbits and Yarns

Bunnies and Yarn, Need I Say More


County Fair 2012

With everything that has happened, I haven’t had time to knit as I normally do. My output this year has been mostly washclothes with the the few things that weren’t headed for the State Fair. So, I dipped into the stash of handknits from last year to take to the county fair this year (you can do that, items have to be completed in the last three years). So, several of these items have gone to two fairs now.

There was a good turnout in the needlework section, maybe not as rigorous as in previous years, but it was still full.


Lauren entered her Marelda Neckwarmer (yes, she knit one of my patterns) and received a blue ribbon.

She also entered two pairs of tatted earrings which both received blue ribbons.

Fellow lace maker, Cathy won Champion in the Lace category.

My tatted handkerchief received a blue ribbon as well.

My Liblikakiri Shawl (the original) received a blue ribbon.

My Luminen sweater (even with the peanut butter slobber from a pup who shall remain nameless) received a blue ribbon.

My Mitered Crosses Blanket received a blue ribbon (sorry for the blurry picture).

The Lilac Leaf Shawl was Reserve Champion Lace (again, sorry for the blurry picture).

The Rosebuddie Blanket was Reserve Champion Knitting.

The Ravinia Sweater was Champion Knitting.

We also took baked goods, but I didn’t manage a single picture of them. 😦 I will tell you that we had blue ribbons on our Orange Marshmallows, Lemon-Raspberry Pound Cake, Almost Neiman-Marcus Cookies, Chocolate Zucchini Cake, and Orange Chocolate Zucchini Muffins. The cookies even brought in Reserve Champion. I have recipes for all of them, but no pictures. Perhaps when we make them again, I will manage to throw the recipe on the blog.

Oh, and my antique knitting needles were 3rd in their category. So, we had a good showing at the county fair.
