Although my main shop is on etsy, when I first wanted to set up shops I did what a lot of people seemed to do, and registered my name with practically every online craft venue! So rather than leaving them dormant, I’ve made over my Misi shop into a place for my mother to sell her hand-knitted scarves.

Hand-knitted Scarves on Misi

I know I’m biased, but I love her scarves: I already have seven, so I’m running out of neck!

On a side note, this made me realize how much easier it is to sell someone else’s work. I had no problems writing descriptions, or posting about the scarves on forums. Maybe it’s because I didn’t see all the work that went into it, all the self-doubt; it drove it home that other people probably won’t notice all those things we see as imperfect, and so we should just be confident about our work.

Sounds easy, doesn’t it? So hard in practice though!
