A scarf and one red flower pin.
Everything else seen here...
I thought for sure that these original designs would go:
But they didn't. I got a lot of "oh, how cute" and "wow, I really like these" without even a look at the price tag - but none of them sold. I was a little disappointed, to say the least.
In retrospect, I was probably in the wrong marketplace. Honestly, the majority of the booths had your typical street-fair, mass-produced crap (I hope I'm not offending anyone here). I really have not decided if I want to pursue this crafting thing further by entering handmade craft shows specifically or displaying items in a consignment-type setting - or if I should give these items as Christmas gifts. Humph!
I was at least knitting-productive during the fair... I worked on a "Thank You Beanie" for Andy for being such a wonderful and supporting husband - he went to the street fair with me and kept me company all day. He's so wonderful!
This is the one of the caps from the recent Knit 1 - the "men's" issue. It is made of Lion Brand Suede. The stockinette bottom has quite a bit of stretch to it... it fits me fine, but I just a tad loose on Andy (I guess I have the bigger head!). I've decided to give it a-washing-and-a-blocking to see if it shrinks up a bit. If that doesn't work, I will rip the stockinette edging out (from the cast on edge - scary!!) and reduce the circumference by doing a few k2tog's to get it a bit tighter... unless anyone has some other suggestions???
