Etsy Shop Opened!


Yes! I’ve opened an Etsy shop–amy hood arts. At the moment, it contains a small variety of zippered pouches in a few different sizes, and the plan is to keep updating. Now through August 31, you can use the code GRAND for 10% off. (The full email announcement is here.) This whole process has, of course, been a learning experience, and I expect I will continue to learn and learn some more as I go.

I’ve had many, many people cheering me on as I tried to figure this all out~thank you so much. It feels like a huge success just to have gotten to this point…but tomorrow I will be making another to-do list and getting on with it.

(But tonight, I’m smiling and having some virtual champagne in recognition of the end result of many, many baby steps.)

      My YKK zipper source (zipit on Etsy; she’s great) has them as small as 3″. Hmm….I’ll think about that! I don’t have any that small in my supply stash–I have as small as 4″.

      You’re right! Also DPNs. Not so much straights, though–they’re too short. You’re giving me ideas on cross-promotions, thank you! I want to run up a bunch of those in the next couple of weeks before school starts.

    Okay, just thought of something else – a small drawstring bag designed to hold 2 50-gram balls of sock yarn, with some sort of divider in the middle (so they don’t tangle). You know, for us 2-at-a-time sock knitters….
