these ARE the droids you're looking for

my boys love the hats that I made for them two Winter's ago (find the link to a graph through this post).  I also have run across a nerd here and there who love these hats and I have now made two hats (and need more blue) and think I might make a couple more.
I've been working off a graph but I not exactly.  I've had to make several adjustments to the way they would be made if they had been knitted vs. crocheted (as I have done.)

perhaps I'll write out the method/pattern so it can be more precise and easy for others to make their own.
(it depends on how much energy I have left after the sale and my pregnancy)

but they're coming with me to the craft sale in 2.5 weeks.
I hope they sell quickly.  that would be a real joy for me

I've signed up for it

and I'm hoping it wasn't a mistake.

but I am tentatively on the list for sellers at the Amboy Art's N More craft sale.

I know that my daughter is going to want to share a booth again.  but I am hoping that I will have much more help this year.

I made some totally cute barefoot sandals for my youngest daughter and have yet to get a tie on them so she can wear them, but I will have them ready for the sale so she can model them.  but I feel that the timing might be a little off for our area being that the sale is in September and after summer vacations are done.

but I am still going to give them a try.
I am also going to have several snowflakes.  I have to pull out my old patterns from last year as well.... I want to make sure I have a nice wide selection
then I need to print a few pictures of items for my portfolio in case there are any orders for items I don't currently have made. though sadly my favorite pumpkin hat is now discontinued because my yarn for that item has been discontinued and I have not been able to find a suitable substitute.

so wish me luck.  it's going to be the last sale I do (apart from my shop) for a long while - perhaps an entire year - since I'll be having this baby only a month and a couple weeks after this sale.

and I just realized today that the sale is also my husband's and my anniversary.
