The Fair is a Veritable Smorgasboard!

Greetings from the Tulsa State Fair!

Let's start off our tour with a mermaid the Short One and I created in the largest sand box I have ever seen! Yes, she was destroyed seconds after this picture was snapped by what had to be a kid's size 8 tennis shoe to the tail.
After our mermaid was destroyed, S.O. decided to try her hand at a much smaller castle. All hail the sand castle mold!

Next we took a ride in a gondola over the Midway. She was all happy and enjoying the ride till I told her to look down.

A slightly blurry pic of the Midway courtesy of hubby's cell phone. But I digress. You came for knitting content, no? Well, I entered three things in the fair. Without further ado, here's how it turned out!
Here's a baby set I threw together at the last moment. Yes, the ugly yellow thing. Red ribbon!

Not knitted, but crocheted, my little star baby blankie also got a red ribbon. On to my shawl.

Sigh. Another red ribbon, but placed next to best in show. There's always next year, right?
