Despite feeling like doo-doo (cold hasn’t gone away yet), I am so pleased that I managed to complete 2 items to enter in the Hunt County Fair. No, it’s not the “big show,” aka the State Fair, but it’s still the accomplishment of a goal. For someone who can set a bunch of goals but then lose sight of them very easily, having 2 completed items with a few weeks left before turn-in is so exciting for me. It was only 6 months ago that I swore to never attempt anything like this again. I was mad at myself, mad at the world. But, thanks to the healing power of crochet and to friends on Ravelry and in the “real world,” I didn’t give up completely. Oh, and I also have that cross stitch piece I made last summer. I haven’t found the right frame for it though.
I’m hoping to complete a few more items before mid-April. If the Pink Pineapple turns out OK, I’ll enter it too. I’d also like to make at least 1 scarf or cowl and 2 toys. We’ll see how that goes. I ordered the yarns for the toys, and it’s safe to say I have plenty of options to choose from for a scarf.
Stay tuned to see if I meet these goals or end up driving just 2 doilies to Greenville on April 13.
