Ever been to a State Fair? If you answered 'yes,' you'll know just why I am so excited to be reviewing the Blue Ribbon Afghans from Americas State Fairs: 40 Prize-Winning Crocheted Designs book from Lark Books. Filled with amazing, REAL, prize-winning afghans from REAL state fairs across the United States, you'll get to experience the charm and wonder of each exquisite afghan pattern. Each flawless design includes large color photos and detailed instructions. Plus, you get to learn where each crochet afghan came from and the designer of each pattern gives their input as well. So even if you can't hop on over to the state fair in your state this year, you can enjoy these patterns right from your home.

New to the state fair scene? Don't worry, you can learn all about the first state fairs at the beginning of the book. I found myself paging through and learning all kinds of facts about the state fairs throughout the years. Did you know that crochet competitions first begain in the 1880s at state fairs? Nethier did I! Learn all about the rise of crochet at state fairs in this fantastic book of crochet patterns from real crocheters just like you and me!
