State Fair Baby Sweater

This is a baby sweater I made for the NC State Fair. It is a pattern I created using #3 crochet thread called DMC Senso Microfiber. I really enjoy this thread, although it can be hard to find. I order it off the internet. I like the Microfiber because it is not quite 100% cotton, and is smoother to crochet with. Also, it doesn't shrink so bad when it is washed. I was very pleased to have won something with this sweater. The yellow butterflies were crocheted from yellow ribbon.

State Fair Boy's Romper

The NC State Fair was, I am happy to say, a big success. I will eventually post all the photos, but here's one for starters. This is a boy's romper, that won first place! I was very excited! I made it in a weekend, just a make-up as you go kinda pattern. Sometimes these things work out, and sometimes not. This I am happy to say did work out. It was one of the few baby boy things I saw out there too.
