Getting there!


Here are the first three hats I've knitted out of the wool I bought from NZ last week, and I'm soooo happy with the result. I bought six skeins of wool, three were multi-dyed (yeah, I'm making up words now), and three were plain, these are the three multi-dyed ones. I will also knit completely plain hats and hats that are a combination of the two types, with patterns...

My plan is to sell them at markets first, and see how they go. They're only a winter item, but if they take off, at least that will be something to work on (I really need a good summer/cotton pattern to work with)...

It's funny, you know, I feel very shy about trying to sell something I've made. I have no qualms buying other people's home-made stuff, but for some reason I feel like I'm not worthy in some way to be offering stuff for sale, like I'm some sort of fraud - ridiculous, isn't it? I don't mind giving stuff away but I find it really hard to ask for money in return for something I've made... I really need to get past that, LOL!

They are fab! Not that I've seen or touched them, but I'd pay at least $25 bucks for one. At least.

Gosh, no! I hadn't planned on charging $25 for them, only around $10-15...
