IMG_5273IMG_5271 IMG_5272This year I entered three items into the Iowa State Fair Fabric and Threads competition. The first was a monster swing in Cascade 220SW from the book Knit a Monster Nursery by Rebecca Danger, this one took a third place ribbon. The next was the Cowboy Cowl in a cream Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky, which received honorable mention and finally the faux fox cowl in Cascade Eco Wool, which did not place. I love the fair and seeing everyone’s knitting. Such an annual treat!! Good job fiber artists!!

I entered these three items into the Iowa State Fair Fabric and Threads competition this year. As you can see my cardigan received a pink ribbon! It is always exciting to see your work displayed but even more exciting when there is a ribbon attached!


Personalized Stocking Hat

Lady friend, Hill Vintage model, and pop folksy ROCKSTAR Elizabeth Arynn requested a personalized stocking hat.

Personalized Stocking Hat. Available for commission, $25.

Bicycle Adornments

Bicycle basket knitted for entry into the Iowa State Fair fiber competition. Available for purchase or commission $25.

And then sometimes you just have to get crafty and attach some crocheted goodness to your bicycle. I used an afghan from the thrift store, serged the raw edges and attached with zip ties. Pretty fancy.
