Harvest in the Hollow

Every year our church/school does services in the "Hollow" which is the field behind school and then there is a big bonfire and party afterward. So here we are sitting in our lawn chairs last weekend waiting for the service to begin. I think it's so funny because over my right shoulder, the white canopy... is the beer booth! The photo above, is clearly after dinner and Chief won these great glasses in one of the kids game booths. He took them to school on Tuesday for 'share day' which is just their way of getting the kids to stand up and speak in front of the whole class.
Here I am wearing a Driftwood cap from Fall 08 Interweave Crochet, which I'm going to start selling as a PDF on Ravelry soon. I have a scarf made of SWTC Gianna around my neck. Chickee is wearing a modified Driftwood Cap, I forget which yarn. She is wearing the Tunisian Lace Ascot made of Patons SWS.
Chief is wearing a checkerboard scarf made of Caron Simply Soft. You can't see it, but Captain is wearing a Tunisian scarf I made for him out of Lion Wool. Aren't we just full of crochet! We're a walking billboard for crochet and it works! Later, a lady came up to me and introduced herself as a crocheter! Hi Katie! So great to meet people who crochet. She was just visiting for the festivities and doesn't go to our church, but still lives near, so hopefully we'll stay in touch.

I'm in a race to see how fast I can get done with a project and get to the post office today. That means you might get a sneak peek tomorrow!

I love that you guys are covered in crochet! That's what my kids look like when we leave the house in the winter. They're always covered in things I've made for them. I would love to be doing what you are some day. Keep up the great work...and I'm LOVING the sneak peeks!

Great post! Love the crochet items. I really like the driftwood cap. Please let us know when it is available on Ravelry.

My little girl gets compliments all the time on her hat and fingerless mittens when we are out and about. Today I'm wearing my Tunisian Arm Warmers and have gotten several compliments at work.
