This year I'm all about winning fame and glory at the Montgomery County fair. I missed last year's entry deadline by days and this year I'm on it! I mailed in my form today and entered in 7 categories! Just think - I could win as much as $28!! haha! I entered in the following categories: adult sweater (unfortunately, the sweater I'd most like to enter - the honeycomb cardigan, can't go because it's a test knit that still hasn't been released - drat!), accessories (I'm going to enter my bird in hand mittens), other (my plan there is to enter my Wollmeise Ishbel - hopefully they don't say that's an accessory), crochet animal (I think I'll send my little amigurumi lamb), knitted doll - cartoon (go Bender!), and sewn animal. Hmm, that's 6. I can't remember the other category! Anyway, last night I made this guy for the sewn animal category - it's another turtle!
I sort of thought that the squirrel, like I made for Emily, may be a better prize winning contender, but it was so much more involved and I just wasn't sure I was up to it. So we'll see how this guy does. Regardless of how well he holds his own in the battle, he was fun to make!
