Hat swap!

Recently I designed & crocheted this cow hat for my fantastic friend LEstes65.

When LEstes posted it on Facebook, her friend Bill saw it. He commissioned this black & red hat (also designed by me--and great for girls or guys!)

And Bill offered to barter, so I got my very own fleece hat, handmade by him!

I love that I can make a little money by selling hats, but doing a swap was really a fun alternative! (You gotta admit, the hat looks far better on my head than money does!)

Now if only it wasn't so hot and humid outside....

I haven't posted much about crochet in my blog recently, but I do put my hats on my C. Beth Crochet Facebook page, so feel free to follow me there.

Awesome trade! You look great in that fleece hat, and the dude rocks your hat as well. Win-Win!

I love the hat - I mean the one you are wearing. Looks awesome, and I think this was a fair trade....

Whew I am sure glad everyone likes the hat and thinks it was a fair trade because I was so nervous and the hat I got was insanely awesome.
