Fair Skeins and Knitted Items

Each year I participate in the Big E's Fiber competition in Springfield, MA. Participation in such an event gives knitters and spinners the impetus to strive to better their skills. I think it's well worth the time to enter.

Thanks to BarbaraT I am able to get my entries to the fair each year. This year I entered several fiber items : a pair of hand dyed hand knitted socks; a felted bag;three skeins of handspun yarn.......the red skein is 2 ply Mohave (a merino yarn), the green skein was spindle spun and plyed mohair , and the brown skein is Kona (a mohair/merino yarn).
