Come to the Fair!

When you visit the Western Washington Fair this year, you'll see some fabulous knitting in the Home Arts section. Beautiful shawls, darling baby clothes, elegant sweaters, toe-tickling socks, and head-warming hats — and award ribbons on work submitted by guild members Joan and Sue.

Among Joan's winners are a sweater and her leftover sock yarn blanket.

Sue won ribbons for doilies and a beaded scarf.
