OMGosh!

As flattered as I am by the posts (& emails) about selling my "wares" let me just tell you....

This is why I just can't bring myself to do it...


It can get a bit difficult at times. And, you know, there begins the emotional connection. KWIM? This is why I only keep or give away my creations ~ as gifts to special people. Because there is just a bit too much invested. Besides - there are many imperfections........

Does that make sense?

This ONE wee bear leg took quite a bit longer than I thought. And, well, who knows when I'll want to do that again? I guess, for leg #2, but after that? Wellllllll, maybe I'll be onto the next thing. I bore easily. I don't think that I've got the sales-thing in me as far as the creative pursuits are concerned, KWIM?

Sorry to disappoint.

But, hey, maybe you'll invite me to a baby shower someday & be very surprised........

I totally understand the emotional connection to things you create. It's a ltitle piece of you!

Katie J said...

Yeah, a friend of mine suggested I sell things on-line and I just don't want to get into knitting as a job. I understand completely!

BTW, what does KWIM mean?

KWIM = know what I mean?

I do KWYM, but I think that YOU will be the only one who sees any imperfections. The best is that it is made with love.

I am with you about easily getting bored. I love anything creative but I go from knitting, to scrapbooking, card making and I am back on a jewelry making kick! :-) I have ADCD, attention deficit crafting disorder! Ha! BTW I tagged you again, I promise this one is easier and fun!!
Have a good day!

ADCD - Ha!Ha!

I KWYM - I've had relatives ask me to make a scrapbook for their children. I couldn't ask to be reimbursed for what it really costs (time and $) to make one. So, I get it.

But, it's still nice to see the pictures of your creations. The bear is going to be adorable.

Oh you are a talented knitter. I wanted to make socks a few years back and wound up with one long legwarmer.

Love the bear and the talent behind it. My talent is writing checks to people like you to pay for things this cute!

I so wish I had the patience (not to mention the skill) to knit. I see all you ladies out there making the most amazing things...and I'm so envious. I was just thinking that maybe you'd all like to come to my baby shower? I'll serve white wine...;0)
