I love making things for myself – this was such a project. It is made of 100% silk yarn, I knitted it then added the crochet edges to it. I’m really proud of it as it required a lot of patience from me – especially where the two colors intertwin. This image came out really funny – as if I had that big belly -maybe it is giving me a hint? Anyways, as you can see it was quite windy and the sun was shining at the same time so it was really difficult to shoot a good picture – and I was eager to share it to my subscribers so didn’t go out again to get a new one. If you would like to check out what I have on offer you can do it so here: Crochet For You

Now I am returning to my work in progress pieces – I have several actually – seems to be a habit of mine… I want to finish a crochet headband, a bra and the pair of earrings (one is ready – so just have to do the other one) this afternoon. Surely I also have a knitting project in progress which I do when I have to travel. I live in a big city and getting to places takes up time – why not use it efficiently?
As for this one…. well, it was supposed to be a woman’s summer hat I crocheted for myself from a pattern – well as you can see it turned out to be so small that it maybe can cover the top of my head… Have you already had a similar experience when following a pattern? So I re-purposed its function: I’ll have to make the last row and it will be a table coaster.
I have been really busy in the last couple of days to produce crochet products and set up a business on Etsy. I now have a handful of products listed, set up a facebook page and a twitter account as well. I also dedicated a pinterest board to crochet stuff. I never seem to get to the end of the “things to be done” list.
Have you ever had this experience?
I decided to showcase some of my things here as well – see them bellow:
I always loved handcraft, I started quite early at the age of 7 actually 🙂 There are periods in my life when I do a lot, and at other times nothings…
Recently I started crocheting again, and I realized that I have several unfinished projects both in knitting and crocheted stuff. So I kind of make a pact with myself at these times: OK, I can start the new project but I also finish one of the old ones.
So comes that now I knit and do crochet as well. I finished a pair of knitted socks recently and another is on the way, while I do crochet earrings and baby booties. As I can knit while I travel, I usually take my knitting with me and make use of the time spent on the underground, bus, etc – or sometimes even while watching a good movie at home. On the left zou can see one of the baby booties I made.
Now with crochet it is different. I have to pay attention to what I do 100%. So I do have to allocate time for crocheting only. On the other hand I love doing it! My friends love my stuff and so I recently opened a shop on Etsy as well.
You can see all my crocheted stuff by clicking on: Your Crochet World . I am in a creation mood, so more things are on the way 🙂 I already joined the Hungarian team – now this story is interesting for sure!
I was doing my medieval dress(more on this in another post) at my friends house as I don’t have a working sewing machine at the moment. She had visitors and we started talking. She explained a lot of things about selling on Etsy and said she can send me an invitation and if I register through that link I can get 40 free listings. As you can imagine I was sold 🙂
So this is the story of starting to sell my handmade products. Do you do any kind of handcraft? What do you enjoy about it? – You are welcome to leave a comment below!
