Here are pics of towels with crocheted top.
Some pics of my latest projects, a purple baby hat and a towel ring.
I was totally disappointed on how the market went today. Big festival going on today, expected larger crowds and larger sales. This did not happen, I only made $8.50 in sales :(
Lady next to me had the hanging towels, this inspired me to make one. I will have to buy towels yet to make some, but in the meantime I made this ripple hanging towel.
I am working on my first pair of knitted mittens. I do like the cable down the middle. I think this is going to turn out a little on the small side. I guess I can sell this at the market as small mittens.

Someone approched me at the market about making repairs to this blanket:

I said I was willing to take on this project. This should be interesting because I have never repaired a crocheted item before.

Here are just some pics from the farmer's market.
