Fall Fever

Well, I did it guys, I opened an Etsy shop. It's going to soon be full of my own, original design crochet patterns. I already have 5 up, including these two pretties...

I made the pumpkins first, and then while at dinner Friday night, hubby said, "How about a cornucopia?" I thought, "Yeah! Why didn't I think of that?" So while watching football today, I banged this thing out, took some pics, wrote up the pattern and added it to the shop. I've had 3 sales this week already of my pumpkins and Mikey's Beanie. I think that's pretty exciting!

I'm going to eventually sell patterns straight through Ravelry (I'm just waiting to be set up) and give a 50 cent discount for purchasing through them to help support such an amazing site. I wouldn't have accomplished any of this without it. Who knew there were so many crocheters out there?

I'm going to add a button to the side of my blog to take you to my Etsy shop in case you want to browse around. There will be much more coming soon! I have soooo many ideas!!!
