I've been busy knitting up a storm for my new ETSY SHOP! I am going to be making hats and headbands to start, all in collehttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifge or high school colors. My crack marketing team consists of my daughter, now a college freshman, and all of her friends at colleges throughout the country; and my son, a high school junior who has been proudly talking up my goods to his friends!
Still learning the ins and outs of being an online seller, but I have my supplies and I'm ready to roll.
A few examples of what I can make in any school color combo:
It is AWESOME to be making up my own patterns for these items too!
While watching U of M's AMAZING win against Notre Dame tonight, I worked on a pair of liners for my daughter's Hunter boots, an apparent college staple! A Ravelry contact gave me the idea to use a kilt hose pattern so that I'd have the wide cuff to turn down over the boots. Great idea! I am making the Toirneach Kilt Hose out of Cascade 220 Superwash in the Daffodil colorway that I've now used for about five different projects! We'll see how it goes!
