Fair Results

I won 2nd place for my doily!

My blanket didn't win. :( It wasn't even unfolded. :(

I know this because I folded it specifcly to make sure at least one of the corners and some of the border was showing. I suppose I should be happy that it wasn't unfolded, because some of the baby blankets were hung over a drying rack with rubber bands holding the blankets, kind of like a curtain tie.

I think I'm OK with this. Not a single baby blanket won an award. All blankets are judged together, there are not seperate catagories for full size and baby size.

The blanket was made for a friend, so it was made for a purpose, not just the fair.

Diagonal Box Stitch Afghan In Progress

I am making this diagonal box stitch blanket for my son's best friend's baby boy.
I used 3 (5 oz) Bernat Softee Baby Denim Marl and an "E" hook. It measures 34" x 34".
I'm still trying to decide on a border.
