Wee Princess is Growing

Wee Princess Etsy Shop Goings-ons

I decided to open my etsy shop so that I can share my love of creating unique one-of-a kind items that I make with yarn.  

I learned to knit about 5 years ago and now I can't stop.  My mind is constantly filled with ideas to try to knit.  I always keep a journal with me, so that when I have an idea, I can jot it down. Some of my creations don't work out as I planned, but I always have fun making them!  I figure that's one of the best ways to learn.  I am also a big fan of YouTube tutorial videos.  When I need or want to learn a new stitch or technique, I have found YouTube to be and invaluable resource.

In my shop right now I have hand knitted cotton fingerless gloves.  All are my designs and patterns. Eventually I will be selling the patterns, as this will be more profitable for me.  I am in the process of learning how to write my own patterns and I am almost ready to add them to my shop.

Here are some of my creations:

Head on over to my shop and check out my other creations

Another of my goals is to start my own line of up-cycled girls clothing.  I will be incorporating my knitting into the process to create a one-of-a-kind outfit that your little princess can wear.
This is what I am working on now:   

This outfit should be completed and in my shop by November.

Coming in January 2013 I will be offering a monthly DIY Kit. I am putting it together now and I will be posting more information and pics in the coming weeks.  I am so excited about being able to offer this opportunity for you.  

I sold my first item!  A pair of  fingerless gloves
