What have you been working on?? HAIRNETS ??? Did someone seriously say HAIRNETS??

That's the current question on everyone's group list. Well I've been busy with some hairnets, yes I said hairnets. Why??? you might ask, well my niece's are all in ballet, ages 10,10,7 (yes twins) and my SIL asked if I would knit the girls these pouches to keep thier hair out of their faces as they danced, so I did. I remembered back in the dark ages when I danced ballet, my mom crocheted some of these thingys for my hair, so I went from memory of what they looked liked and I think I accomplished it. So when the girls went to dance class the next week the other moms asked my SIL if I sold them, well my SIL is a business woman and doesn't like to miss an opportunity to grab some cash so, she said "oh of course". So I wound up making several for sale I usually don't sell any of my craft items so pricing these are really up in the air. My SIL thinks she can actually get $10.00/ea. for the fuzzy yarn and $7.00/ea. for the acrylic yarn, I don't know, what I so know is I wouldn't pay that, but I guess if you don't knit, crochet or loom, you do. I'll keep you posted on this little venture.
