    Default I decided to knit Scarves as Christmas gifts for the Ladies in our Family

    They are the Sashay ones which are beautiful. It will cost me between $5 to $7.87 plus tax for each scarf to make. I took a couple into work to show the girls and I have a couple of clients who were there and wanted to buy them....I have 4 orders of scarves to sell...Wow! I didn't see that coming lol...it takes me about 3 hours to knit one. The farmers market are selling them for $30 and $35 so I was thinking of charging them $25. I have not decided on what to make for the Men in the Family, I am just learning to knit so I am thinking maybe slippers. It is going to be a homemade gifts kind of Christmas

    That's great! What a fantastic little side business you could have there.

    I took some crochet scarves to work and over about 2 years I sold 12 scarves, 2 afghans, 1 poncho and about 35 can cozies.
    Once people you know see your work, some of them are very eager to buy - especially when you charge less than retail and they can choose their own colors.

    Good luck with yours!
