The Knitting in Recovery ladies at New Visions had another great year at the Ventura County Fair! Katherine, Charmane, and LaDonna each entered several pieces and each were awarded multiple ribbons (1sts, 2nds, and 3rds) along with many honorable mentions by the judges for their exceptional work.
The ladies look forward to the fair all year and receive a great sense of pride from showing their work alongside their fellow knitters and crocheters across the county. LaDonna has the longest standing history of entering things in the fair–this was her twenty-eighth consecutive year entering. Next year she plans on making a tapestry with all of her fair ribbons from the course of her career and entering that in the 2018 fair.
Aside from her ribbons, Katherine also had a big fair accomplishment. Katherine has recently taken on teaching Knitting in Recovery classes at Castillo del Sol-Quality of Life. One of her students entered the very first blanket she had ever crocheted in the fair this year.
