How Do You Know It’s Fair Time?

July 27

I knew the Mid-State Fair was on when I looked at my car’s thermometer. And this was after I pulled over to stop in the shade!

Fair-Temperature

(Note to hubby, who worries about my driving… I know the tach says “D” for Drive, but truly, I wasn’t barreling down the freeway when I shot this.  111 is degrees, not mph. I promise.)

Rather than waiting for the cooler evening hours, I rushed right over to check out my friends’ knitting entries. Here are just a few of the local prize winners from the talent-filled SLO Knitters group:

You know I have a thing for fair isle. Diana’s hat is stunning! Love the colors, love the critters.

Fair-Hat

 

It’s always a delight to see what sweater Anne is whipping up. I like the way the variegated yarn works out in this pattern.

Fair-Sweater

 

And what can I say about Betty? She’s amazing. I should have known she’d be great at tatting, as well as knitting and who-knows-what-else. And here we are talking about teeeny tatting. I wish I could show scale on this because the stitches are minuscule.

On a totally different subject, aren’t these veggies beautiful?

Fair-Veggies

 

Once every year or two I eat a funnel cake. It was so hot, I actually waited for mine cool off before diving in this year. Why they bothered with a fryer is beyond me – they could have just thrown the batter on the sidewalk and it would have cooked up just fine.

Anyway, yum.

    Diana’s hat looks a little like the kind bad Bill can(not) make! Loved the photos of the great knitting! Oh the heat, though–111 degrees is way too hot! Loved your blog! I’ll be back!

    Silly rabbit! Frying on the sidewalk is unsanitary! ;-)

    Beautiful entries, all. The tatting looks like fine wire art!

    I only hope that my veggies will look that good.
