As Good As it Gets

Sit back and prepare for a preview of the items I am entering in the Great Allentown Fair.

First I made a shawl. If a triangle dishcloth shawl made from LB Homespun can win a ribbon, just imagine what a really nice shawl can do! So I dragged out some Woolease that I had in the ol' stash and started to knit.

I do love this shawl:

Of course I am entering it in the fair! Do I look dumb?

More tomorrow.

First place in shawls is $2!

Wow! I'll be rich!
