I knitted a shawl.

And today I entered it into the agricultural show under 'hand-knitted other'.

Thank you - I was quite chuffed as I took it in, when other exhibitors admired it!

Well done. It is lovely and deserved the prize :)
I entered a pair of bootees in our local fete last year and was rather embarrassed to win as first prize as it was the only entry. They weren't very good either!

I decided to enter three different classes partly to support the show and partly to improve my chances of winning!

Thank you! Can't decide whether to teach myself beads or nupps next!

I'm doing a lace scarf with nupps at the moment - they're not too bad once you get the hang of them, though purling 7 stitches at once can get 'interesting'.

I've got a lovely nupps scarf pattern, and a skein of the royal wedding laceweight and intend to merge the two! Do post a pic of yours when it's done!

It's gorgeous, well done!

I was scrolling the picture, and at first (I'm on a small screen netbook) saw the third prize card, and got all indignant ...

Quite an accomplishment. Even more so because you came in ahead of the little farm animals at an ag show!

Knitting is on the increase, there was even a table with three knitters and two spinners demonstrating their leet skillz.

Thank you - I nearly gave up when I snagged a loop and had to unravel the Whole. Damn. Thing. Glad I persevered!

It's fab, isn't it - I wanted something I could wear with my big black coat at the Remembrance Day parade, and decided I couldn't go wrong with poppy red!

Crikey, that's out of the blue!

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/queen-annes-lace-5 - it took some time but I'd do it again.

Actually, I did do it again. The first time I knitted it, I had almost finished, the snagged a stitch on a button and created a huge loop of yarn. I had to unravel and reknit the whole thing...
