After a few years of knitting everyone a hat or a scarf, you’ll start branching out to more sophisticated patterns. One of the things I like to do is put my knitting and crochet into competitions.
I attend a number of Irish festivals each year and there is usually an Art competition at the adult level. Sometimes, there is even a separate entry for knitting or crochet. Once I have the target date in sight it gives me an opportunity to really push my skills on a piece.
This weekend I’m submitting one piece for judgement. A year ago, for the same festival, I made an adorable teapot cozy. I loved that piece. Then I walked by the adult art competition and happily understood my 2nd Place. 1192, you were a strong competitor.
I haven’t tried a state fair or a wool festival yet, but I’m hoping to start preparing a lace piece for the 2016 Virginia State Fair.
What would you knit?
