I finished crocheting a beanie Wednesday night. I am working on the matching scarf. I gave the beanie to V. on Thursday. I told her I will have the scarf finished by next week. I crocheted my first headband last night. I think headbands would be good items to post on Etsy. I want to keep my Etsy shop mostly for hats and hair accessories. Headbands would also be good items to sell at craft fairs.
I gave the sample headband I made to my friend M. She gave me suggestions for improvement. She thinks headbands are more functional if the ends are tapered. I’ll try crocheting and maybe knitting a few headbands that way. Headbands can be different lengths and widths. So I can probably make several different styles and sizes. I also think I will put flowers, buttons or ribbons on some of the headbands. Wider headbands can be used for earwarmers during winter. Maybe I’ll purchase a few headband patterns from other Etsy sellers. I am always saying that I haven’t sold anything on my Etsy site. But I also haven’t purchased anything from other sellers on Etsy yet either.
Tomorrow is Saturday. I have a cranberry and pink beanie and scarf set to finish. Hopefully, I’ll also start on that black beret I mentioned earlier in the week. Next week I will start crocheting a lapghan. I’ll make it about 36″x36″ because that is a good size for people in wheelchairs. Next week, I will also place a yarn order. I need to stick to my budget and get what I can. The red ripple afghan is finally finished. Except of course I need to weave in the ends.
