|The horticultural and craft exhibitions|
Mum and Dad's 60th birthday creations and my moroccon tile afghan picked up 3rds.
Sadly I didnt scoop a prize in the bag section!
and my Year of Project show entries......
rainbow heart doilies made with size 10 thread and a 1.5mm hook. I will admit to being a little disappointed not to get a prize on this one but they will look great up on the wall.
And I finally finished Josie's genevieve sweater. It used 6 skeins on superwash merino worsted dyed by Ali and Pixieknits and I got the tension with a 5.5mm needle. Have hated this project (incorrect yardage requirements and the pattern was lacking in description) !!!! If I ever make this again then there is no way I'd make the skirt so full - all that back and forth stocking stitch drove me mad!! Josie is chuffed to bits with it though and it picked up a 3rd at the show.
and here are a few more pics of the carnival
Take at look at the Year of Projects page on Ravelry for lots more crafty pics
