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!
(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.
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.
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?
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.
