I have been crocheting for nearly ten years (although I do not do crochet very extravagantly) and have always enjoyed making simple scarves and blankets for friends and family. During the past holidays I thought to myself, why not try to sell some? Every year in a neighboring town they have a festival in September. It is very cheap to "buy" a booth and set up shop to sell pretty much anything you want to sell. So I decided that I would try to do that this year. I plan to have at least 50 scarves and around 5 blankets. Doesn't sound like a lot, but this is small town Montana we are talking about.
Above is a picture of a baby blanket, non-gender specific, that I have been working on. I wanted to use multiple colors that could go with a lot of different nursery themes. The yarn is so incredibly soft that any baby would love to cuddle with it. And I hope to have it done by this time next week!
