Fom time to time, I was asked would I knit something for someone else... for money. I always replied no. I would be gladly teach anyone to knit, even write patterns, but never wanted to think of it as a money-making possibility. It is no by chance that the subtitle of my blog, is "this is just a blog", because I never wanted to sell/advertise anything. Besides knitting because I must, not to mention knitting on a deadline, would kill the whole thing.
But once in a while these enqueries came. So I had to do some hard thinking. Put aside my shyness, and self questioning. And decided, that though by principle I would still not knit for orders (with a very few exception), but if I make something and someone would like to have it... He/she can. From now.new etsy shop, where you can buy a few things I make.
