Fenland Fair

Fenland Fair

August 2013

Lovely Blue Belle, Collette, tells us a little bit about the Blue Belles’ entry in the Fenland Fair knitting competition.
So, our entry form has been submitted for the Fenland Fair and the fear and competitiveness has set in. The theme of the competition is a basket of 5 items to welcome a new baby (each item in the basket has to be made by a separate member of the Belles), so after much deliberation a decision of the items to be included and makers are as follow:

Claire Wilson: Mittens
Katie Johnson: Booties
Holly Myles: Bunting
Anwen Astley: Blanket
Collette Johnson: Hat
Michaela Joysey: Basket (to up our game we are making our own basket – as you can see the competitiveness has firmly set in)

We have chosen our colour theme of baby green from James C. Brett (purchased at local business ‘The Sheep Shop‘). The fabulous Anwen has designed knitting patterns for the competition with a gorgeous heart motif which we will carry throughout the project. In a couple of weeks we will update you with lots of photos of our progress and increasing competitiveness.
