I’ve already decided that 2012 is the year of many things:
1. the year I stop picking my nails… for good
2. the year I crochet socks for the first time
3. the year of the panini in our house
and today I added another:
4. the year I finally start an etsy shop
I had made a hat for a friend a few years ago that someone in Missouri liked, and I was contacted about making one for them. I always love when someone contacts me about making something for them. I love hunting for the right yarn and pattern, and giving them something made just for them. So to make a hat for someone out of state that I didn’t know was exciting to me. It is the same feeling I get when I get to feed someone, I absolutely love it. This might explain why I’ve not made something for myself in a couple of years! I plan on fixing that very soon, though.
This pattern in particular I decided to scale down to toddler size and whipped one up for Oscar yesterday (I needed something to distract me from the pummeling IU was receiving). I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. I think Oscar is too, as he insisted on wearing it while we played play-doh, trains, and colored today.
I will set up an etsy shop this year. If I blog about it I have to do it, right? Please hold me accountable, friends.
