You saw this hat in progress a few days ago. Here's how it looks finished. (Recognize that white ornament in the background? That's my prototype for the free pattern on the website!) I wasn't even going to enter a hat, as all my show choices are with my editor right now, but I finished this up at the last minute. First place was a mohair & ribbon yarn combination. I think it has more eye appeal than my entry. Anyway, look for the pattern for my hat to be on the website next week.
I loved designing this scarf. It's available in the Three Scarves pattern on the website. Not only did it take a blue (best in the scarf & shawl class), but it got a purple (best in the knitting division)!
My skirt and shell top set took third and second in their classes ("not specified" and shell top/vest),
my kitty (in the novelty yarn class) didn't place at all, and my adult-size basic e-wrap Thick and Quick afghan rightfully took second to this beautiful basketweave baby afghan.
This is my favorite of all the yarn entries, a felted basket. I haven't been that attracted to felting, but this reserve champion piece could sure change my mind!
