First Place County & State Fairs!

I have the ribbons for the County Fair but not the items since they are up in Phoenix for the State fair.

I entered 2 handspun yarns, a pair of socks and a shawl (made from the hand spun that won 2nd place last year).  I would have gotten first place last year at County if I had filled out the form and had know about the matching ties they wanted on the yarn.  I filled it out this year and made sure the ties match.  For my effort, I got first place this year.  Since I started weaving, the fair coordinator says I must enter my weaving next year.

I got pictures and now know that my handspun yarn won first place at the State Fair.  I don't know how my socks or shawl did though.
