This is the third year I've entered handwork into the State Fair. I had plans to enter a variety of things, but I wound up just making two entries.
My first entry, the black and grey mittens, took a blue ribbon! I'm not very pleased with how they're being displayed, because they turned the top inside-out to show the convertible finger part. It's hard to see just what's going on. But that's okay! I squealed and jumped up and down.
I also entered a Knitted Babe. I found it more difficult to enter her. I think it might be because she has a face--I have more severe fear of rejection for her, although that is totally silly. She got a red ribbon! I hope she enjoys her stay at the State Fair.
