A few weeks before Christmas, I sent out an email letting friends and family know that I had product that I wanted to let go of and so I let them pick through the items I still had on hand and let them take whatever they wanted so they could give them as gifts to their friends and family. Whatever was left over, I decided I would give to charity. I spent a few hours scouring the web to find charities that would take hats and cowls that I didn't sell. I found one on twitter that actually contacted me last year, called Emily's Hats for Hope. Emily is trying to reach a goal of 25,000 hats this year and I am happy to help her with her goal.
Now I'm starting fresh with my inventory and I've already began stocking up again with new items:
|Hat/Cowl 2-in-1. Made using Lion Brand Heartland|
in colorway called 126 Sequoia
|Malabrigo Neck Thingie and Malabrigo Hand Thingies by|
Anne Sahakian. Made using Lion Brand Landscapes
|Baby Set (0-3 mos.) Apple Blossom Cardigan by Sarah Franklin, |
Fleegle's Seamless Saartje Booties by SusanGlinert Stevens,
and Eyelet Baby Hat, by Brigitte Lang
These are few of the types of new items I will have available in my Etsy store. I'm looking forward to this coming year because I am also gearing back up to get into some new shows. I have been checking online to find local shows that I can sign up for. Once I have my applications submitted I will announce here and on my Facebook page where I will be for 2015.
Leave a comment to tell me what you are working on now that the holidays are behind us. And here's wishing you a happy new year and happy knitting!
