Crochet caps

One Panda, Two Panda, Three Panda, Four....

OK, this post is really for Alan's mom, who we're sure is crocheting up a storm back home, catching up with the holiday gifts.
The crochet or knit cap market has really taken off here in Chiangmai the last few years.
Seems some people are willing to put just about anything on their heads, and not just the tourists.

Strawberry hat. My favorite.

These go for about two to six dollars apiece, depending on your bargaining skills.
Mine aren't that good, plus I'm not willing to walk away over a mere twenty cents.
Always bargain in good faith (with a pretty good intention of making a purchase) but never argue with a seller. They generally have a pretty good idea what the lowest price is in any marketplace.

Then there are always swan doilies. You'll never know when you need them.
