Here I am, perhaps a little late again, but i’ve been so busy especially that uni is starting next week and I wanted to get my little knitting brand up and running before classes started. I’ve been working on children’s knitwear at the moment yet I haven’t listed my sweaters online yet, it has been a busy last couple of weeks nonetheless 🙂 Let me plug my brand a little here though:) It’s called Bunyip & Bambini, and so far its mostly aimed at babies and toddlers, but might expand to kids..and pets further down the track:D We’ll see how it goes. I’m not sure theres much of a market out there for hand-knit garments any more, and theres a lot of people who have underpriced their knits online, even garments and blankets that would take ages to knit, are sold for very cheap unfortunately. I would hate to see the craft undervalued as the years go on:( It’s really just a hobby as I plod on through uni for a little cash on the side. Here are the links if you are interested in taking a little looksies…..
I’ve listed it on etsy and ‘Made it’ though I much prefer ‘made it’ to etsy, just because you get genuine people who are interested in your shop looking through your items rather than sellers you meet through promotional groups who want to get views up. I think I may let my listings roll over in etsy in fact and just sell through ‘made it.com.au’
I’ve also been getting into vintage knitting. I love those old vintage baby dresses etc although the patterns of the 1930’s are a little different then modern patterns to read, but slowly I hope to get a hang of it. Im a little nervous I won’t have as much time to knit while I am studying, but Im slowly learning to knit without looking, in hopes to be able to read texts while working on some more baby wear.
I’ve chosen baby wear mainly because I have a short attention span and something that usually takes more time and dedication to knit throws of some mental alarm in my mind and I have a little break down. The thing with baby clothes is, it takes less time to have a finished garment and its great practice before knitting bigger garments using the same concepts.
Its a little late here in Aus, so I’ll finish up my brand plugging for tonight and I ll return sometime within the next day or so with a proper blog upload:) Good night all and happy knitting!
