Art on the Avenue!

Tomorrow is Art on the Avenue, a fun festival of food, crafts and music on Mt. Vernon Avenue in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria. There will be dozens of crafters there, including yours truly, hoping against all hope that it doesn't rain!
I have been knitting like crazy for the past several months to get ready for this show, ramping up my baby hat collection, as well as introducing fingerless gloves, coffee cup sweaters, and my newest favorite, puzzle balls!
Come by and visit if you are in the neighborhood - I am in booth W172 between Hume and Uhler Streets.
