The bedspread won First Prize: a Blue Ribbon, along with a Special Award: a big Yellow Ribbon, at the State Fair. There are four Special Awards given each year for what the judges consider to be the best entries. Mine won for Best Crochet. Both ribbons are given with a cash prize.
The Fern and Thistle Shawl won an Honorable Mention ribbon.
I just finished the Fern and Thistle shawl last weekend. I was scared to run out of yarn when I bought the wool, and now I have a whole unused skein to add to my yarn stash. (like I really need any more in this house, LOL)
It was fairly easy to knit. Now it's on to something new to start on my needles.
I just finished making my bedspread last night. You can see all the notes about the progress in my Ravelry page. It took 6 years to complete. I'm very happy with the results. Whew! it's good to be done with it. Now what will I start on I wonder? :-)
I am trying to knit the Cable Guy sweater from Son of Stitch N Bitch, and I have a really big question.
Hey guys. I just put this shawl onto wires to block it.
Rainbow squares afghan is done first in the original traditional black border, and next in a color that more closely resembles Ravens Purple, since I live in Ravens territory of Baltimore.
Hey guys. Thanks for your assistance in the knitpro question.
Thanks, Melbcub. I'd appreciate it. I attached the file as a pdf because that's the way it was generated. I don't know what kind of file is needed, or how to change from a pdf to something else.
Hey guys. Does anyone have the computer program to split up a pic into squares? I saw it here a while ago, and I thought I saved it but can't find it.
Hey guys. I just finished another project. This one is from a 1984 Brunswick pattern mag, Cozy Afghans, volume 843.
