Fall Fair Season Revisted

I’m getting ready for fall and am ready for fall.  That means pumpkins, my birthday, and crisp, cool weather.  Though I will sadly miss summer, fall is great time to celebrate the fruits of the previous season, be they actually fruit or the proverbial kind.
I have given some thought to my previous ambitions to enter in the local town fair next week, and I have decided against entering my knitting for the following reasons:
  1. I am sick and tired of knitting those shells.  I felt obligated to do them, and there seemed to be no end in sight.  Maybe I will pick them back up again one day, but I’m shelled-out.
  2. I’ll be WAY out of my league.  People enter things like intricate lace and outrageous Fair Isle.  I haven’t even hit those realms yet. 
  3. I have a photography job on the day people are supposed to pick their item up.
I think those are three good reasons, I suppose.  Maybe it’s my own lack of self-confidence, I don’t know.  My DH suggested we go and check out what people have entered this year so I can get a better idea as to what people actually enter.  I think that is wise.  I’ll get the scope of things and then plan accordingly for next year.
