One of the goals I set at the beginning of the year was tackling an ambitious knitting project. Considering I’ve been leveling-up with the garter stitch over the past year (and made my first baby blanket), it only made sense to challenge myself.
What I had in mind at the time: learning to purl and completing a pattern requiring purl and knit stitches.
What I actually did: opened an Etsy shop for my knitting, Izzie’s Workshop.
My stash of completed hats and headbands have come in handy, and so the shop is stocked at the moment. But it still looks pretty bare, which means I’m already raiding my yarn trunk to find anything pretty while also trying to figure out what to knit. I want to have an eclectic mix of items for sale and not just hats and headbands. I’m thinking scarves and baby blankets and shawls and cowls. Maybe cardigans and sweaters eventually.
The challenge now is avoiding Michaels and AC Moore until I put a significant dent in my yarn stash. Like can see the wood bottom of the trunk-sized dent. If I knit as much as I plan to, that should happen sooner rather than later.
I’d appreciate it if you’d check out Izzie’s Workshop and give us a follow on Instagram and Twitter. Those second two will feature new items and sales in addition to cute dog pictures and knitting updates.
