A Shop of My Own

For as long as I can remember, I've dreamed of having my own knitting shop.  A cozy little corner store on a quiet street where I could be surrounded by beautiful yarns on a daily basis and customers would occasionally stop by to browse, chat, knit and shop.  That was the dream.  The reality of that dream would probably be more like me barring the doors & windows so the customers could not gain access to all that beautiful yarn and end up taking it away from me.  And with the doors barred, UPS wouldn't be able to deliver new yarns.  As embarrassing as it is to admit, I could actually sort of see that happening.

So, I decided to do the next best thing.  I opened a shop on Etsy to sell my hand knitted items.   Instead of a corner store on a quiet road,  I am in my home on a curve of a quiet road.  I am surrounded by beautiful yarns everyday.  I'm creating & knitting daily.   I'm chatting with customers via email and I hope to one day meet at least a few of them face to face.  I'm listing my items for sale.  And I'm having the time of my life.

I hope you'll come visit my shop.  You can find me at   Oh, and as a little incentive, my first customer will receive 10% off their order.  Hope to see you there!
