Tonight I am trying to get a set of cowboy boots finished up for a commission. I’m using the Baby Boot Scootin Boots pattern by The Lovely Crow. I haven’t really worked with baby shoes much yet so I have frogged this particular pattern about 10 times trying to get it right. Here’s to hoping I can work this up and get it done without further issues.
I originally just started out thinking I was going to put up an Etsy shop and call it good. Well running an Etsy site isn’t always all that easy, especially with all the other crochet shops out there. I have since created a Twitter account, Instagram and a Facebook page. I am not really sure what I am going to do here. I’m not the best blogger out there but I’m sure in time I can learn. If you have an tips for me please feel free to leave a comment.
I started crocheting in December while working overnight shifts doing senior home healthcare. I needed something to do to kill the time when my client was asleep rather than just watch TV or play facebook games. I bought some cheap yarn and some hooks and sat down with some YouTube tutorials. My first few tries were frustrating. I wanted to give up. But I made myself push on. I made a bunch of different hats. I developed a serious obsession for yarn and decided I wanted to use this new-found hobby as a way to help pay for my sons extra-curricular activities. I also donate items to the local NICU and to NILMDTS in Denver, CO. I plan to expand into dying and selling yarn by (hopefully) next spring.
Currently all my items can be purchased by sending me a message on facebook and discussing the particulars there. I hope to have a shop up on this page in the very near future. If there is something you want done but cannot find an example on my facebook then feel free to message me and ask. I can make (or am willing to try and make) anything you can dream up!
I can be reached via e-mail as well at firstname.lastname@example.org.
