Finally, the fall fair! We went last weekend, and I haven't had time to share the news until now (because we also moved last weekend... busy times!) This post has kind of a ton of photos, so I hope you're into that. First, I won't lie, I went to check out the Needlework Room, since that's where my entries were! (In case you missed it, the post about what I entered is here.) Out of four entries, two won blue ribbons! SO EXCITED! Both the cabled mittens and the Shepherd Hoodie won in their categories :) The other two things just got to be part of the fair, which is also pretty excellent as far as I'm concerned. The Shepherd Hoodie also won the Victoria Knitters' Guild award for best Fancy Knitted Sweater! So cool. I love fairs. (And if I'm honest I really like winning stuff too.)
Other awesome stuff we saw in the Needlework room: an incredibly cool knitted salmon, a crazy intricate knitted gingerbread house...
The whole room was full of amazing things, which of course I failed to photograph. Oops! I did snap lots of other cool fair stuff though. Vegetable dude!
Tiny adorable plants!
Apples make me feel like fall is right there. Right?
Thanks for the instructions 4-H!
I ate these. Also mini-donuts which I failed to photograph :)
ALPACA PARTY! I got to pet one. What.
Sheep haircut time! Just a trim.
Brad: "Do you know why some of them wear coats?" Me: "YES! It keeps their wool cleaner and prevents it from being discoloured by the sun. KNOWLEDGE!"
Sheep buddies :) Their faces are basically the cutest.
Prize winning eggs! This colour is bananas.
Bye fair! I'm already excited and planning for what I'd like to enter next year.
Is there a local fall or agricultural fair near you? I heartily recommend them :)
