Kiwi - 2nd at HoCo Fair, no placing at State
Red Hat - 1st at HoCo Fair, Honorable Mention at State
Scarf - 1st at HoCo Fair, 3rd at State
Purple Hat (my own design; one of these days I'll write up the pattern. I know I have a similar looking pattern already on this blog but it is not the same. This one is double-layered around the brim.) - 3rd at HoCo Fair in Original Design category; I did not enter this at State.
I entered this as a child's pullover. I followed this pattern from Lion Brand. I made the "small" size. However, when I sewed all of the squares together, I did it so tightly that an adult can't wear it. Anyway, it got 1st at HoCo Fair and 2nd at State.
For the shawl, I did what I like to do when I use Purl Essence Rainbow Boucle yarn: crochet two skeins together. It makes a thicker fabric and gives an interesting striping effect.

Frog backpack for a child: 1st at HoCo Fair, 1st at State.
This was the first time that I sewed a zipper into anything. I think it turned out alright. I'm still not sure what to do with it. That being said, I have a few friends who just had kids and we are all paleontologists so they might be interested in it.
