And here I caved in and used the fluff type yarn that you see every body using.
Baby Blue Fluff
Addition: 3 beret's, I bought a bulk lot of yarn on Sunday 27.08.08, for $40.00 and I have so far made these 3 beret's and a divine hat in light blue, there is so much yarn it will keep me going for ages, not that I didn't have a stock pile already!

Bold gold buttons set this lovely green set off
Another softy in red with a bow to go
This is a request for a bright coloured childs set
Now they sit fuller.
They are also attatch more securely in an anti theft way.
The stand cost $12.00 and it can be raised or lowered, the market table fit's perfectly in between the upright posts so it displays it's self with in all of my other products.

Astrid, is the very first person to share their crocheted work with me.
Check out her blog it is a must see.
Thank you so much Astrid, I look forward to sharing more with you.
Oh, I hope you don't mind that I took the copy of your picture above.
There are alot of things to consider, presentation playing a very major role.
Transportation of your goods.
The weather plays another major role, unless you are selling indoors.
Plan ahead, windy conditions saw the purchase of occa straps and big clips to secure my goods (sort of look like this but plastic), wet weather saw the need for water proof covers.
Too many small stands can take up precious room in your transport vehicle and on your stall table.
Your timely arrival at the market is also important, arriving late may see you in a long cue of stall holders, wasting valuable time from the setting up of your stall.
A small float of coin and note's, clearly marked pricing, the wearing of your product if applicable, a companion, be prepared to answer all questions about your items, such as the materials used, "can you make more, how long will it take, will you be here next week?"
A thermos of hot coffee, food and drink.
Get to know the rules of the market you are selling in.
A positive and friendly approach.
Week 4 picture, and my daughter Casey, she was a great help. (Another good week, but it did rain. Week 3 still the best.)
Left over yarn from these 2 set's.
Bright and Soft Red
More than half of these sold. I had made 4 other set's too that I did not take picture's of that were made for an order.

My first time to upload a video clip.
It may be a bit dark, but it was a bit of fun for me.
This is how I displayed them at the market. The sunlight hit the foil and they shone.

Some times I use a pattern and most of the times I don't.
Some times I get ideas from patterns and change their idea to suit me.
Below are a few examples with out patterns.
I will be taking these and more (gotta make more) to the market this week end.
This was the first photo I took, I could not believe the eerie mist type shape I saw in the picture preview, so I took another straight after which is below. What do you think the mist is? I have no explanation for it, but the shape seems to me to be a giant skull. I usually crop and make my images smaller before posting them, but this time I didn't, just so I can't be accused of playing around with the image. I'm not into super natural stuff, but who knows?
