ETSY LAUNCH: Princess Crowns, Hospital Gowns, and Knitting Rounds

Needles and rounds exist in both hospitals and knitting; however, I quickly learned only the latter provides comfort.

In the year of 2015, my health declined due to Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and its co-morbid conditions, Mast Cell Disease and Dysautonomia. Eight months out of that year were spent inpatient at the hospital. It was the many hours of binge watching the TLC show, Breaking Amish, that prompted my interest in knitting. 

Sept. 2015 - First Knits

I was never a crafty person. I mean, come on. I was the girl who struggled with elementary school crafts, discreetly tapping the kid next to me on the shoulder to ask for assistance with tying a knot for a project or cutting the "hamburger" or "hotdog" folded papers in the specific way the teacher demanded. So, me actually knitting was quite the shocker!

People have been suggesting I create an Etsy shop for awhile. It is just recently that I contemplated the idea. And, I am excited to announce that I finally took the advice! I suppose we shall see how this all goes. The shop is called "HospitalRoundKnits."

The link is here, posted above, on the blog, and on my other social media sites. The shop name is meant to correlate the blog, as well as the reason I began knitting in the first place.

There are three listings at this moment in time until I can establish how many sales, if any, I receive. Everything is under twenty dollars.

Want something specific?

I do take requests and try to fulfill custom orders, within reason. Please specify the desired color(s) and I will try to meet the need, even if I have to seek out a particular yarn.

All products are normally made with Acrylic yarn, unless stated otherwise.

Returns are accepted with money back if unsatisfied. All of the above is reiterated in the shop description, along with the remainder of the details.

So, feel free to check out the shop, purchase a knitted product, or offer critiques/advice.
