Knitting and crocheting continues to be a popular hobby featuring both usefulness and relaxation. Entries in this division are judged on suitability to purpose and design, evenness and perfection of stitches, neatness of blocking, and quality of seams and joinings. The “hand knitting” class includes about 20 different categories to choose from, ranging from an adult sweater to accessories for home. “Crocheting” features almost 25 categories, from a children’s dress or coat to holiday items. Judging will be held Wednesday of the fair in the Open Class Exhibit Building at 1 p.m. In addition to awards of first, second, third, and fourth place in each category, a rosette is presented to the best of show in both the knitting and crocheting classes. Exhibitors and fair goers are invited to sit and watch the judging process.
