I did it. I cast my mom’s sweater aside and started another project. Shame on me.
I started a scarf, which is equally inappropriate for the present weather conditions, but it marks the beginning of something wonderful – my first made-to-sell piece. A while back I set up an Etsy shop to sell my wares. I never put anything in it, but that was mainly due to time constraints. Now that my schedule has drastically changed, I think I’m up for the challenge. My goal is to build up stock during the summer months so I can “launch my line” in the fall. I haven’t a clue how this will all pan out, but I’m excited to see!
As you can see, I’m starting simple. I’m going to experiment a bit before settling on my favorite styles. Right now I’m exploring chunky rib. Can’t get much closer to instant gratification than that!
