The first of the month

This year, I will once again attempt to post every day in November. Sometimes the posts will, of course, be about my knitting, but I am working on the Botticelli these days and it's just the same stocking stitch stripes over and over. I think I am almost finished a piece, so perhaps pics of that soon!

But first, I will show you this how-to video, which some of you will undoubtedly have seen:

This first appeared on the guy's blog where he gives the following instructions:

Step One: Knit.
Step Two: Keep knitting.
Step Three: Finish knitting and open an Etsy shop to sell your wares.

Ha ha ha ha.

I was out with some friends the other day, and had my felted buttonhole bag with me. They were all oooh and aaaah, and, of course, said "you could make those and sell them!" So we had the time/materials/cost discussion again. Would you spend $150 for a felted purse? Not me, though I would spend the time making one.


  1. Excellent video. S will be happy to see that compared to some people, she is an expert knitter.

  2. that guy is so so funny!
    "i wouldn't come to your house and say your sister's not your sister!"
