This year I thought I'd be daring and try new things as well as expand on some old skills. This year I opened an online shop through Etsy. This is the first such endeavor I've attempted. We'll see how long I can keep it going. I'm hopeful that if I just keep chugging away at things I love doing anyway, i.e. crocheting and sewing, the shop will always be open. It may not be large, but at least it'll be open.
In support of my shop, I decided now is an excellent time to start blogging as well. I plan to blog about ongoing projects, adorable patterns I find, delightful work done by others, and anything else I find that is crafty as well as blog-worthy.
This is the first piece I listed on Etsy. It is a cowl I crocheted in a cluster stitch with Loops & Threads Cozy Wool yarn. So soft, thick & luxurious; I love it! I made some of these earlier to give out as Christmas gifts and I received so many compliments on my work I decided this is something that might actually sell. Hope so, any ways.
