Regular readers of the Lion Brand Notebook might have noticed that I love sports and sports memorabilia. Recently I attended a sports card show, and through a sea of sports collectibles, I noticed a woman selling knitted scarves at her husband’s booth. It just goes to show you, that you never know where yarn might pop up. When I got up close to the booth I realized not only were the scarves knitted, but they were knitted with our yarns like Homespun, Mystery, and Fancy Fur.
If you’ve ever thought about selling your handmade goods at a local show, craft fair, or even online, here are a couple of things that might help you on your way (click the highlighted text below to learn more):
