📰 How do you feel about making things for other people?

Hi Crafters,
So far October has been about knitting commissions for me. I finished a waistcoat in the early hours of Wednesday morning for a customer at Hungerford market and now I’m working on one of my London Underground scarves for an Etsy customer.
I know a lot of knitters wouldn’t want to sell what they make, but I love knitting things that I know people really want. And if they’re willing to part with their cash, I know they want it!
How do you feel about making things for other people?
I’m a knitter and a nerd. Find me on Instagram as KnittedByNails, and my favourite crafty supplies are for sale in the Woolly Rebellion shop.

This Saturday
It’s another Indie Roller community shopping event on Saturday 16th October. This means I’m going to have a couple of bargain bundles up for grabs in the Woolly Rebellion shop.
All The Country Birds Bundle
All The Country Birds Bundle
The first Bundle contains ALL of the West Yorkshire Spinners Country Birds Yarns for £65.
That’s ten 100g balls of sock yarn. That’s more than enough to make 10 pairs of stripy socks! 🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦
It’s actually pretty difficult to have all 10 of West Yorkshire Spinners Country Birds yarns in stock at the same time, so I wanted to celebrate. You will get a ball of
🔵Blue Tit, 🔴Bullfinch, 🟡Goldfinch, 🟠Kingfisher, 🔵Mallard, ⚫Owl, 🟢Peacock, 🟤 Pheasant, 🔴Robin, and 🟣Wood Pigeon.
Autumn Vibes Sock Yarn Bundle

The other bundle is smaller and captures those autumn vibes.
You’ll get the following WYS Signature 4 ply colourways;
🟣Passionfruit Cooler
🟠Autumn Leaves
There’s a lot of mix & match possibilities there for just £27.
📨 I’ll ping you a short email on Saturday morning with a reminder because once these bundles are gone, they’re gone! I’ll also try to highlight some things available from other members of the community that might appeal to fellow fibre crafters.
