Hat-Making Season

Every summer, I (try) to crochet 200 – 250 hats to prepare for Craft Show Season (CSS).  It’s a lot between work, family, friends, and napping, but I normally come close to meeting the quota.

My summer this year is extra tight on time because:

  • I’m moving for the first time in my life (besides College)
  • I start a new job in August
  • I’ll be traveling to Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maine, Las Vegas, and California for 20 days straight
  • 4 of my friends are getting married
  • 2 beach trips in the works….

Needless to say, this summer’s looking busy…just how I like it!  I had free time this weekend so I raided the yarn stash to crocheted a few hats.   I’d like to share my latest creations with you.  I used my own crochet patterns for the hats and love how they turned out.

In retrospect, it appears I have a flower fixation at the moment, ha. Which hat is your favorite?

This year’s craft show season also marked JJCrochet’s most profitable day of selling EVER.  JJCrochet sold 1 crocheted hat ever 6 minutes.  Yes, 86 crocheted hats were released into the market at the Clarion Autumn Leaf Festival.  And in case you’re wondering, seeing people walk around wearing your designs is still a rush, even after 6 years of doing craft shows.

Now that CSS (Craft Show Season) is over, it’s time for JJCrochet to start building up next year’s inventory.  Crocheted hats, crochet berets, knit caps, and even a crocheted hexagon blanket are in the works.  [Perhaps even a “How to Crochet a Flower Video Tutorial”…]
