California State Fair results

The California State Fair Creative Arts Fiber Art Show Exhibit results are in:

Honorable Mention - Crocheted, Coverings (To include but not limited to table cloths, doilies, etc.)

Pineapple Song
Ravelry project details

Judge's comments:
Your crocheting technique is good. Sometimes a lighter-weight thread helps to create an even prettier design.

I'm pleased that this piece received recognition because I'm sure the competition in this class was quite high... and thankfully the judge didn't see the mistake I found while I was blocking it. :)

2nd Place - Knitted, Any Other Knitted Item

Sipalu Bag
Ravelry project details

Judge's comments:
Wonderful bag! Level of difficulty lowered your score--otherwise your attention to detail and finishing were great. Very nicely done!

Like last year, I don't understand how level of difficulty is measured, but 2nd place is nothing to shake a knitting needle at. California is a big state!

Road trip!
