The Story Behind the Cowls

As you may have noticed, cowl scarves have been popular for the last couple of years. As a poor law clerk I needed to find a fairly reasonably priced gift for my fashionable city friends around the holidays. I began making cowls and giving them to my friends as holiday gifts. Their friends saw the cowls and wanted one of their very own and Albertine's Creations was born. I also have a lot of fun knitting and cannot possibly use all of the lovely items that I knit, so I am making them available for other people to love.

Although I've been a voyer and buyer on etsy for several years, I am still getting used to being a seller. I spent every spare moment I had over a two week time period reading all of the storque articles and blogs that I could to learn everything I could possibly learn about being a seller before becoming a seller myself. I still have much to learn. As a part-time crafter, I intend to use this blog to chronicle the ups and downs of my shop and to track what works for me and what does not. I hope someone else can find this helpful some day!
