I was getting ready to do a craft fair on Saturday at Hellys and did not crochet or knit a finished item. I did crochet a few squares last week that I think I might make into a blanket, perhaps maybe. I sold a rag rug which I knitted a while ago, the lady who bought it loved it and said quite a lot of work must have gone into it, and it did as the coloured fabrics had to be cut into strips and knotted together then knitted on big needles. Knitting with cotton material was harder to do as it is less easy to manage to knit with than yarns. I was pleased I carried on with it as it grew bigger and it became a colourful rag rug. I have a photo of it as a banner on my blog, my Etsy and Folksy Shops, my Weebly website and on business cards. I will keep it on there now it is sold, as it looks good. I also sold at the craft fair a set of four cotton crochet coasters too so, a good day at the craft fair.

I wanted to make a hat next after making an infinity scarf and liked this pattern I saw on All Free Crochet. It is a beret type hat that was adapted to this design a peaked cap which I like. I used the acrylic yarns I had with me changing the colour as I went along. It is made using single crochet throughout. I will keep it for myself.

I liked the stitches in this pattern and as I needed another scarf and it was quick to make, with a single crochet, half double,double crochet then miss two, in the round. I made this. Here I am in my daughters lovely Victorian house sitting down with a bag of wool and this is the scarf I made. We love it here and are staying another week. I have got two legs btw I like to sit with one leg tucked under me I find it comfortable.
