To create my How-To dvd's and sell them through my Aunt Dot website. Planning on giving How-to-Knit, How-to-Crochet and How-to-Tat away.... then offer for sale dvd's that walk you through specific projects, start to finish. Knit a pair of slippers? Aunt Dot'll show you how! And there'll be an added surprise bonus in every dvd.

Dream... dream... I've got my logo, am currently cross-stitching in the colors. And my theme song - now just have to record me playing it on fiddle, then on harp. And the program to record and edit my dvd's... but need to buy an external dvd-burner.

Then to get my website ready for hoards of eager visitors! I'm going to post free monthly articles about knitting, crocheting or tatting. And have a blog. And-and-and!

Dream... dream... dream.

Dot

I dream of finding an ad in the HelpWanteds calling for a knitter--lots of loot and full benefits.

I would so be interested in purchasing project-specific DVDs. I went to your website and saw that you have a free DVD for crochet - which I am dying to learn! I tried to click on the links that ask you to click on them, but there is no actual link there..

That would be awesome... except being the rebel that I am, I would probably HATE it if I HAD to do it.

Being a professional knitter would be my absolute wildest knitting dream come true. Probably not even my wildest knitting dream, but actually my wildest dream!

Unlimited yarn is a very, very close second

I was going to click on owning yarn store, but just closed down a retail business a couple of years ago because of the hours involved and strain on me physically. I now have abundant free time to do what I want which is to play with my girlfriends and go out with hubby from time to time. Why would I want to tie myself back to a fulltime work schedule. Lifetime supply of yarn would allow me to continue to enjoy life as I want.

Yes, I've yet to get them up and going. I'm working like the dickens to get my first How-To-Knit dvd even recorded. My website is very much a work-in-progress at this point.

Within the year, I devoutly hope...

Believe me, I've pretty much boggled my brain trying to get a DVD test printed... poor quality, so far. And I need to get better footage for a distributable DVD.

All in due time. Ordered an external DVD-burner today, so should be able to get moving really soon.

Thanks for your interest!
Dot

Seriously? Sit me down with some yarn, some needles, and a book on ipod. I won't even remember that anyone else is on the planet. HMMM... does that mean that my knitting dream is to forget everyone else on the planet?? ah, no.... who would I knit for then?
