This week our question is about your knitting… In many communities, “the fair” is a great place to visit and spend time with your family. It’s also where many have entered one product or another (jams, cakes, even knitting)… Have you ever entered your knitting (or anything else) in the fair? Would you ever consider it?
I’ve never entered anything in a fair, but I did enter a pair of gloves I designed into my local guild’s mitten/glove contest. I won for the category of “mittens/gloves knit from an original design” but I think I was the only one who designed my own pattern, so I can’t claim I won due to talent alone.
Edited to add:
…for those of you who live in parts of the world w/o fairs…would you ever consider entering your knitting in a competition?
Yes! I wish we had fairs here, I’d love to enter competitions!!

We have a local fair with craft competitions. I may enter things with RJ when she gets a little older.
