Open for Business

My Etsy store is.



Do come and check it out!

I've been hemming and hawing about pricing quite a bit.  I personally wouldn't take waltzing out and buying a hat more than $20 lightly. However, I use high quality yarns with natural fibres (see here for a few reasons I'm drawn to them other than how enjoyable they are to knit) and I spend quite a bit of time making sure the item is a quality item, made to withstand being passed down to friends and family alike. If I was charging an hourly wage, these hats would be hundred dollar hats, but it brings me great joy to share them with you and I have tried to set prices that will cover costs and a bit of time. Thank you for checking out my wares, and for supporting me in my craft!

They look fantastic! And I've been hemming and hawing about which one I like best! (I'm noted for being a poor decision maker.) Will you be adding more soon? I'm also wondering how true the colors are in your pics. I know it's hard to get good shots!

Thanks Grandma G! I might add a couple by next Monday (another dino hat for sure.) The colors are pretty true, theyre all taken outside. The only one thats a little funny/off is the blue and yellow dino hat.

Good! What about the Flying Geese one, though? It looks like a deep burgundy on the (your?) head, but much lighter in the pic by itself.

Lovely, lovely!

I would hem and haw about pricing as well. People tell me I should make and sell some of my creations; but I know how much time it takes to make quality items.

Just a hint for you - go back and edit your descriptions. I noticed a word missing on the owl hat and "youre" is missing an apostrophe on another. You wantto sound as wonderful as you create!

These are amazing! I really like the Hoot hat and the disappearing cables looks positively divine!
