Hats and Other Projects

Recently, I have been toying with the idea of opening an Etsy shop.  I see others that either have Etsy shops or sell handmade items through their Facebook page or even do both.  The thing that concerns me is will I lose my passion of crocheting or knitting if I do commissioned items?  I would like to think I would bow out gracefully if that were to become a reality.  So while I am doing research on this and on what platform to sell my items the bigger question becomes what will sell?  I mean I know what I like but everyone is not like me and people have different styles and tastes in clothing/accessories. For now I have been playing around with different patterns for hats and cowls.  I don’t know…I am pretty much building this plane while I am flying it. So we shall see what happens.  Here are some of my projects I have completed thus far:

Divine Hat and Ruffled Scarf

Two hats with pompoms, the gray one with strips is for a child
