Fair and Square

We checked out the Guilford Fair this weekend.

We had to do a bit of explaining with this activity, but we got it.

No explanation is needed when it comes to ice cream.

And my knitting won some ribbons!

2nd place in the Children's Sweater category - the first place / Best in Show piece has a Husky on it. Sure, Go UCONN and all that, but I still think Dachshunds are way cuter!! Especially on that Willie sweater!

I did score a 1st place ribbon on the Malabrigo Dress I knit up last year. The categories are narrow at the fair for the knitting entries, so this went under "Miscellaneous".

That's pretty much it for pictures - the Lorax did way better at the fair this year and I expect that next year we will have to give in and let her do some rides, but this year was good. She could walk next to us or be in the stroller. She was interested in checking things out and seeing the animals. Good times!

I wish I knew you had stuff entered! We went on sunday and my youngest daughter was so interested in the animals I skipped all the hand made stuff! Going to the Big E tomorrow. Should be fun!
