Crochet in the Summer!

Now that is June (!) and the warm weather has descended upon the District, tees & shorts are in full effect! It made me think about where the area's most talented crocheters fit in during the hotter summer months. Well, if you ask me, they fit in perfectly.

Modern crochet isn't all about scarves, socks and gloves--although there's nothing wrong with that at all! In fact, I have the cutest crocheted hat & scarf set. Anyway, modern crocheters know that the 85-degree+ days mean it's time to break out the hand-crocheted accessories.

Just ask crochet artist, Ninnycat. Not only does she crochet beautiful lightweight hats, she also creates crocheted earrings, umbrella cozies, tissue holders, and yoga bags. So, as you see, the heat will never knock a good crocheter out of a Market. They come prepared.

We have two wonderful crochet artists at the Ballston Arts & Crafts Market on June 12th. Check out Ninnycat Crochet in her usual spot, Booth #1 and YarnChef Creations in Booth #16.
