I think the scarf is a lovely photographer’s prop as well as an investment piece for a personal wardrobe. I see so many etsy shops selling baby knits, and while I love baby hats, I think selling cool knits for senior and family portraits is a cool idea. I’m giving it a whirl, and we’ll see what happens.

I am getting my etsy shop up to speed, and have decided to list both patterns and finished objects. I am listening to podcasts and reading every thing I can on having a handmade business. So much to  it, people. It’s sort of unbelievable how much goes into a small business now. It’s recommended a shop have over ONE HUNDRED listings to start seeing results. Wow. That’s kind of a LOT of stuff for a sole knitter. Don’t you think? That’s why I’m going to write up every thing I’m doing as patterns and finished pieces. And then offer the same basic items in different colors as separate listings. Yeah. It’s going to be interesting! Please check me out and favorite me and my items and share my site through your media. I would really appreciate that!

Willie and Biscuit, the two old men who are best friends! They are both senior dogs who really love being together.

Working on my first magic loop knitting project!! Also my first thumb gusset!! Whoo hoo! Bought the needles, pattern and gorgeous yarn yesterday at one of my LYS’s. I’m doing a couple of these gloves in some old Vanna White yarn to get a feel for all this new technique. I will say this is taking much longer than my flat knit mitts. It could be all the pearls that are part of this. Has knitted into such a thick fabric. Should be warm for walking the dog thus winter. I will probably still wear them even with the mistakes. #knit #igknitters #knittersofinstagram #mitts #circular knitting (at Virginia Beach, Vrginia)
