I've been crocheting for several years now, and knitting for less than a year. I can follow patterns, but what I really love is creating things from scratch. My pattern for Skoodies (hooded scarves) have been selling very well. I've also sold my own take on shrugs, basic hats with embellishments, and wire jewelry. I've been successful in selling items through my facebook group, Molly Made, but I really want to step it up a notch.
I plan on using this blog as a way of pushing myself to come up with new items, and as a way to meet others who love yarn as much as I do. I am really into combining knitting and crocheting. All too often I find people who only knit or only crochet, and I feel we should appreciate and take advantage of both art forms. They each have equally useful and beautiful traits, so why not combine them!
I'll start this blog with some skoodie pics. Eventually I want to post the pattern for sale on Etsy, but I've never actually written the pattern out. I'll be sure to announce when the pattern is up for sale.
Thanks for checking this blog out, and..... Happy Crafting!
