Congratulations to Carolann Laird and Gwen Greene who won ribbons for their knitted and crocheted items at the recent Williamson County Fair!
Carolyn knitted a beautiful baby afghan and earned a 3rd place ribbon for her work! Here are some details: The yarn I used on the baby blanket was called Encore Colorspun. It is a knitting worsted weight, 75% acrylic and 25% wool. I used double strands throughout and a size 13 circular needle. I bought the yarn at Patternworks, a shop in Center Harbor, New Hampshire.
Gwen crocheted an afghan, a christening set and a framed bouquet.
Free pattern from Lion Brand using Red Heart Super Saver and an H hook.
Open Crescent Set from Christening Sets for Crochet by Leisure Arts, Designer Kay Meadors. Used size 10 thread with Boye size 7 steel hook.
Spring Bouquet from MyPicot.com. Used size 10 thread with Boye size 8 steel hook.
