The State Fair

I promised a post showing different crafts at the State Fair - and here it is! I finally got some time to pull the pictures from my camera (yes, I still use a camera... I don't have a smart phone) and get them loaded to the computer. This will be a very image intense post so get ready!

Of course, the first picture is the beast-ghan with it's blue ribbon. The afghan above it looked like a log cabin type granny square and won third in the same category (crocheted in multiple pieces).

[Video] Surface Crocheting Down a Round Ripple

If you are looking to spruce up a round ripple, this can be an interesting technique for you. It's a little different than standard surface crochet simply because you have to accommodate for the height of various stitches. Please feel free to leave a comment or any questions you may have.

Weekend Off

I have been pretty regular the last few weeks with posts; unfortunately, my internet is down at home so I'm posting this really quickly to let you know you will not see my YOP post on Sunday - I figure I was a day early last week, I can be a day late this week *smiles*

I will be going to the State Fair this weekend so I'll be able to get LOTS of pictures of the yummy yarn candy and share with you next week.

Other than that - I'll be spending a lot of my time this weekend behind the hook :)

God bless and have a great weekend!

Featured at Zazzle!

Readers - what a great day. I got this email in my inbox on the 8th letting me know that the tote "So Happy Together" was selected as one of the featured items at Zazzle.

How exciting!!!

State Fair Results

I thought I would take a quick moment to let you all know that the beast-ghan won first place in its category! I took one item in one category and won. That is SO exciting for me!

Honestly, I didn't think I'd win because the sheer volume and the afghan category is pretty darn popular - especially the crocheted category. I did not win overall best crochet or knitted item, but that's ok! The woman who won actually had several items she won on so who knows how many total she brought to the fair. It gives me something to shoot for next year!
