I love to Crochet (idol hands and all) and my husband has recently gotten frustrated with me. I spend a month or more making these throws and blankets and such, sometime whole baby or bedroom sets, and then just give them away as gifts. To me, this is the best part! The look on their faces when they realize that they mean so much to you that you would take all this time and make them a (if I do say so myself) beautiful blanket. I love that! It is a way for me to show you how much I care.
But, times are tight, and blankets cost at least $40 each to make, besides the labor. He wants me to start selling them on ETSY. This has always seemed an unlikely prospect to me, considering how much time they take to make. I always pictured ETSY to be sort of an order-it-how-you-want-it sort of marketplace, not finished items. And if they did sell, it would take me months to make another. Is it worth it? Share your stories with me please.
