A book, not about knitting.

Is it silly that I wanted to but this book, for 7 dollars, because it had a knitted 'sweater' on it? Lol ;p

Fair Entry Winnings

So I haven't blogged about how my fair entries did.

Well, I entered 5 knitted items:
An infant cardigan, a baby hat/cap, a pair of socks (pomatomus), a stuffed rabbit (kind of looks like a door stop), and a small scarf (palindrome pattern).

My entries did well. I earned 3 Honerable Mentions (for the scarf, socks, and bunny). Then I also earned 2nd Place with my infant cardigan. (with a whooping prize money of 2 dollars) lol.

So in the end, I was pleased. I kind of threw these entries together in a month. So not bad really for a first try. So I have a dollar check and four ribbons in my glovebox of the car.

Right now, I am sitting in my car, along the beach, staring out at the ocean... While knitting on a sock. ;D Along with finishing my iced coffee. A nice start off for the day, if I do say so myself. It is also kind of fun watching the surfers in the water. It is kind of a 'gloomy' overcast at the beach, but I like it! ^.^
