In late September to October, city of Dallas hosts the Texas State Fair, which is this crazy big fair that attracts nearly 3 million visitors with their live stock competitions, car and truck shows, carnival rides, fried foods, and the ultimate rivalry football game between Universities of Texas and Oklahoma. This year, I entered my favorite blue and white Enchanted Garden Around-the-Bases afghan into their craft fair and I am happy to report that I received the blue ribbon in the small afghan category!
You may remember this beauty from the 5th inning of the Around-the-Bases Crochet-Along. The linked post has info about the center square, how I expanded the base block, yarn used, etc. Photo tutorial for the center block is available at my Ravelry shop and it continues to be a popular download along with the full PDF version of the Around-the-Bases afghan.
I cannot decide if I want to finally start using it as an everyday blanket or frame it for my future dream craft room. 🙂
