This was my entry into the County Fair 2013. It is a ruffle and curl scarf, made with Lion Brand Wool-Ease yarn. I am so happy with how well it did, I can’t wait to try again next year! One of these days I will put together the pattern I used for it, though I am sure there are similar patterns on Ravelry.com.
Tomorrow I will post a photo or two of the Mommy and Me hats I finished today, and the FREE link to the pattern!
Busy day with crochet today. I follow Lion Brand Yarn on Facebook, and was informed today is National Make a Hat day. When I found that out, of course I had to participate. It helps that I had a commitment to make a set of Mommy and Me hats for one of my work friends. I was able to finish the larger hat after quite a bit of frogging (you would have thought a whole family of bull frogs moved in)! At first the hat was all warped looking because my stitches were a bit off, so I ripped apart half of it and did it again. It was still a little warped but, it flattens out when it is on your head, and looks super cute. Tomorrow I will start on the little hat. They are going to be the same style and the same color (Vanna’s Choice in Cranberry). So I spent the day with a ball of yarn and hours and hours of football. Lots of ballin’ today!
I also picked up my Blue Ribbon winning scarf exhibit from the fair today, it is a Ruffle and Curl Scarf in a wool blend. It is my first ever fair entry, so I am super happy with the beautiful Blue Ribbon I brought home.
Tomorrow I will post some pictures (I have to wait for the right light), and a link to the wonderful free pattern I found for the hats.
