the county fairs always sound like so much fun!.. hmm a throw would be fun..you could definately work your own design. Good luck and keep posting your progress cant wait to see what you come up with!

We had a male customer come in to the shop and he told us of his county/state fair experience. Apparently, they didn't want to enter him because he's male. Then when they did and he proceeded to win, they made him demonstrate his knitting to make sure he didn't cheat.

Equality, my fat arse.

Just go with what you do best. Something that you've done before, and that you enjoyed doing, something that everyone loved. It doesn't have to be complicated, but it must be very well done, showing excellent technique and sensitivity to the use of appropriate yarn and design for article.

No, we've got a very long way to go before there is equality... a very long way.
