This is her rug entry. I can't remember if I have shown it before or not, but here it is. She finished it several months ago. It was knit following the directions in the Mason-Dixon knitting book. However, the potholder loops it called for made it a very expensive rug for our budget. R went to the Hanes outlet and bought the longest tube socks she could find. We took turns cutting them into one inch loops with a rotary cutter that soon died afterward. Moment of silence, please. Then she dyed the loops in red and pink RIT dyes. It was a fast knit and she did a great job. I think the whole thing was under $30 as opposed to $200 for the loops the book called for.
I would show you the other entries, but she is still sewing on the skirt and I don't have time to prod her along and have a photo shoot too! As soon as the fair is over, we'll take pictures of the rest and share them with you.
Looks like the little red bird is ready to go, so I guess we better fly! Wish us luck!
