The Frugal Musician knits



As the weather cooled last autumn, I learned to knit on a round loom. I bought yarn at my second hand store and made use of the round knitting looms my aunt gave me several years ago to create hats and gauntlet gloves for Christmas. All were a big hit.

I also figured out how to make knitted draw string purses like the one you see here. I have several versions of this at the etsy.com site below the picture. These remind me of the reticule purses Jane Austen characters carried.

I hope I can make some extra cash by using my creativity. There’s something about making something and then having someone purchase it and love it that makes my heart sing.

Do you do anything creative to sell? Do you like Etsy.com?
