I'm fairly new on the crochet scene, and on the blog scene! I picked up crochet in the summer of 2003 on a whim and discovered I loved it! I've been crocheting like crazy since. Recently I attempted to go a whole week without touching a hook. I did it, but it nearly drove me nuts! So I guess I'm addicted. Oh well, I suppose there are worse things to be addicted to.
This summer I entered the two crochet item pictured above in the local county fair. Neither of the items placed. :-( Now I can understand why the sun dress didn't place, it wasn't my best work. But the poncho... It took some work to finish and looks (and feels) absolutely gorgeous! When I went to pick it up after the fair, the lady who put it on display said she was admiring it. But it didn't even get an honorable mention. It makes me wonder what it takes to place. Oh well! Maybe I'll enter less popular categories next year!
