Once again, I entered a few knitted items for judging in Homecraft at the Brooklin Spring Fair.
It took me about an hour on Thursday morning to find samples of yarn to attach to the entry cards and get the cards attached to the items.
I also switched these 'Intertwined' socks for another pair that was made from yarn with a good twist and stitch definition but contained a major knitting error. The lilac-coloured socks were from the Regia Angora Merino sock yarn and the accompanying pattern book. I hoped the lace panel that wound around from the side of the heel gusset across the instep to the toe would impress the judges.
Yesterday, I dropped by in the late afternoon to see how I fared.
My GAAA didn't have a sticker on the tag. Instead I was beat out by this, a garter stitch, fringed blanket in what looked like some type of acrylic novelty yarn.
This was the rosette-winning crocheted afghan. It was beautifully stitched and appliquéd.
This was the quilt that one 'Best in Show'.
