Today (and yesterday) I updated my ETSY shop

I’m not sure why it seems so daunting to add items to my ETSY shop, but it’s been about a year since I  added any new items–and that was when I opened my shop.  It’s not because of a lack of things to stock it with.  I think it’s because the pricing thing makes me nervous.  Also, I worry that people won’t like what they buy.  I’ve sold two skeins of handspun yarn, so far.  But today, I added some new items to my ETSY shop.

And I added some handmade items as well as yarn, namely, the freeform crochet hat, above, made mostly from handspun yarn and the arm knit infinity scarf.

There is also some hand-dyed commercial yarn that I experimented with in my Redding Method dye class:

And some hand spun, too:

Including this tailspun yarn with wonderful long locks that I’m not convinced I want to sell:


I have some things now with lower prices, so I’m curious to see if they’ll sell.  And I’m also curious to see if I put up more listings before next summer.

My daughter, Gabi, helped me both times with weighing, measuring, pricing and naming.   Thanks, Gabi!

And thanks to you for stopping by!

Until we meet again….

I am a writer, handworker, artist and teacher (a WHAT!), and a mom of two beautiful daughters who are amazingly 17 and 21. I am working on getting my first book, a fantasy novel for young people, published and am busy spinning on my new spinning wheel. I have been a Waldorf early childhood teacher for 10 years now, and before that, I was a lawyer. Teaching is much more fun.
