Local County Fair Winners!

So I pretty much decided at the last minute to enter some items in the local County Fair.  I got 1st place for the socks and 2nd place for the rest (shawl and 2 handspun yarns).  I'm pretty happy with my ribbons.  The winnings were on $9 but just the fact that other people think my spinning & knitting is worth ribbons is worth a million bucks!!
