Pretty Knitty Jewelry

May 29, 2012

Well, today is the expiration date for the last counter in the shop.  Still blogging, and still buying on Etsy.  Still knitting.  Hoping to someday get back into everything...eventually.  Until then, enjoy the blog, and Knit in Good Health always!

About 3 years ago, Pretty decided to make some knitting accessories, open an Etsy shop and blog about the whole experience!  Today, many sales later, I look back to see that this has been a fun and wild ride!  I remember that first sale like it was yesterday. . .the waiting for it, then the email notification, then the celebration. . .thanking my cheerleaders, and dancing around the living room while I packaged the order and happily mailed it off!

When I started Pretty Knitty Jewelry, I was looking for something to fill my time while I watched my daughter get ready to fly from our nest, and I worried about an upcoming deployment for my Army boy.  It was just the thing to both engage my creative side, and also fill up some of the worry time to help keep me sane.

These days, Dollface is married, but still a big part of our lives, along with her husband, Snake; Mork is still in the Army and on his second deployment, and he and Mindy have given us a beautiful Peanut to spoil silly; and my "day job" is busier than ever!  While I still love to create, with yarn and clay and wire and beads and whatever I can get my hands on, I am finding it difficult to keep up with the ins and the outs of the shop.

Wow.  This is like saying good-bye to a dear friend!  But not really.  I will still create.  I will still knit and blog and continue to be Pretty.  Thanks for stopping by, please stay.  I have so much more to blog about!!!
