Crochet Hats and Swear Words

My Lovely Mother In Law has been crocheting hats for me for the markets.
She used to crochet, once upon a time, but had forgotten how.
So she bought a book, but the hat pattern was for a ladies hat! There were a few phone calls and it was decided I would give her my hat pattern!
I use American Patterns, different terminology, sizing...
Apparently my very lovely mother in law, who wouldn't say shit for sixpence, said a whole lot more and stabbed the pattern with a crochet hook!
My business minded Father In Law has upped the Hat prices to $800.00 each! Plus postage!
She's definitely got it now, Ive got a basket full of them, even after selling a heap at the Olive Tree Market!
Apparently, she finds it relaxing :)
I am going to list some in the madeit store for $12.00, Including Postage.
The cold weather seems to be hanging around a little bit longer!
