Knitting The Mitten State: A New Pattern In Development

by jennifer

With plans for an exciting Handmade Tour of Michigan in the works, I’ve been thinking a lot about the great state I call home.

I’ve also been thinking about rising gas prices and how I’m going to pull off this self-funded trip. It’s not a lucrative solution, but I’ve decided to write a fun Michigan map dishcloth pattern and sell it as a PDF download on this site.

I will probably end up using my cloth for a more decorative than practical purpose, but the knitting is fun either way. I hope to wrap up my pattern draft in a couple days. Then I’ll recruit some test knitters to check my work and make the pattern available for all you mitten state lovers ASAP.

In the meantime, please keep sending in your tour stop suggestions. I’ve gotten some wonderful tips from readers and can’t wait for this summer’s handmade adventure. I’m also cooking up a plan to craft with people along the way. So let me know if you’re interested in showing me around your town. Tell me what you make and how we may be able to collaborate this summer.

There’s noticeably a bundle to learn about this. I assume you made certain nice points in options also.

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100 certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos
