BigSis2 here. My younger sister started an Etsy store last January with her crafts, and in order to support her shop, I logged onto etsy.com and gave myself the name BigSis2 as a buyer, didn't know I could remain annonymous and buy from her. Anyway, once I checked out etsy.com I decided to open my own shop ... then discovered in the fine print that my username was my shop name and it CANNOT BE CHANGED. So my etsy store is BigSis2 and I'm stuck with it. My little sister has two big sisters.
I've been knitting since I was 16. Most of my items, I wore or threw in the trash after being in the closet for many decades. I quit knitting for about 30 years, I hate unfinished projects. Last year I gave myself permission to make mistakes, pull out all of my stitches and start over, etc. I think finally getting a granddaughter changed me!! First I made a shawl for my daughter-in-law that actually turned out (after blocking). Then I made a baby sweater (hoodie) that actually matched the guage.
I bit the bullet early 2008 and made a sweater coat for my daughter-in-law from Patons SWS Earth. It was awesome.
Then I discovered knitting and felting handbags and never looked back. I have a blog www.3knittingsisters.com
and a store www.BigSis2.etsy.com
