Introducing...Brittany Foster -- award-winning knitter and proprietor of Britt's Knits.

Brittany's Mom sent us this note with photos of Brittany's creation. Our congratulations to Brittany on her persistence and her skill in creating this gorgeous Berroco skirt.

I'll be sure to ask Norah Gaughan to check out Brittany's creation so she can marvel at the skills of a young fan.

Brittany Foster, an 11 year old 6th grader from Pueblo, Colorado is shown here modeling a skirt she made using Berroco yarn purchased from Yarn Market Knitting Store. After many, many hours and thousands of stitches she earned Grand Champion at the Pueblo County Fair in Pueblo, Colorado. She went on to win Champion at the Colorado State Fair. Brittany likes to make chemo caps for the children at Children's Hospital in Denver and has recently started her own knitting business, Britt's Knits.

Congratulations Brittany! It's so great to see you in your award winning skirt. Did you enter the fairs as a 4-H'r? I participated in 4-H too, for 9 years, in New York State. Looks like you have many years of great knitting and fairs ahead of you. Good work on the chemo caps too!

Have fun knitting.
