State fair progress

I'm slowly but surely making progress on my final state fair projects.  I'm definitely not going to get everything done, I think the lace project (a beaded vase) is going to have to wait for next year.

I think the knitted wire candle holder is done...I even have two to choose from.  I like knitting with the thinner (30 gauge) wire much better!  Now to make several more before the craft fair.  Which one do you think I should enter in the competition?

The felted wreath is totally done.  The leaves were a pain to cut out, but it looks really cool!

Now to finish a knitted flower for the felted bag, and knit up a pair of fingerless mittens really quick!  The coral wool is for the flower, and the blue wool/silk blend is for the mitts.

I also have to spin another partial skein to ply with the locks that I spun a few weeks ago.  I was going to ply it with the blue/green sea silk, but the colors didn't match so I ordered some purple bamboo to spin this weekend.

Happy spinning and knitting!

I like the candle holder with the red beads best.

Me too...that's the one I ended up using! I bought a few red (cinnamon) candles, so the candle even matches!
