It's always exciting to win a BLUE ribbon!!

I decided to enter something into the Topsfield Fair this year. This time a shawl.
My "Waiting for Earl Waves in the Square Shawl". The pattern name is: Waves in the Square.

I loved it so much in the orange Madelinetosh light yarn that I used that I saved it for the Topsfield Fair in Topsfield, MA. Now I can wear it just in time for the month of October right? I have a knitting party to go to on the 30th and I know I can at least wear it to that.

And I'm happy to announce that I won a Blue Ribbon ...

It was all folded up so a couple of the Fair Volunteers asked if they could open it up to see it.

Maybe I'll enter something again next year. Maybe even two or three things.

I also loved spending the day seeing all the sights at the fair  ...

I just love the smells and sounds of a good fair and this one was no exception even though it was a small one. Small compared to the ones I use to go to in New Hampshire anyway.
