I had always seen knitting as a granny hobby. But this past fall, I took up the art of knitting as a way to stay productive while sitting on my couch as I binge-watched countless Netflix tv series. Before I knew it, I had a stock pile of hats and scarves that I wanted to share. Knitting soon became my go-to creative outlet when I got home from my day job as a graphic designer. I was even finding myself yarn shopping on my lunch breaks. So before I knew it, I was selling scarves and hats to co-workers, friends, friends of friends…and soon in a small art gallery in St Paul (Pioneer Art Gallery).
I’ve been so busy lately preparing for a big art show that I haven’t been knitting all that much in the past month, but I’ve been keeping an inspiration list on my pinterest board. Check it out HERE!
I will soon have hats and scarves for sale on my Etsy site as well. But if you want first dibs on them, you should attend the RAW Minneapolis Art Show onThursday, February 20th at the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis. I will be selling hats and scarves along with posters, prints, paintings, drawings and more! If you attend, you can buy tickets HERE!
*If you buy a ticket, make sure you select THE WOODEN LLAMA as the artist you are supporting).
And wait, there’s more! if you attend the event, and say that you heard about me from this blog post, I will give you $5 OFF ANY ONE ITEM that I am selling at the show! If you can’t make it to the show, check my etsy in the end of February HERE!
I also have a PORTFOLIO SITE HERE if you’re interested in seeing even more
