Living on a farm where there has been a sextuplet goat birth, things can get a bit crazy. Between bottle feeding kids six time a day, regular chores, milking, watching the pregnant goats for signs of going into labor, running a retail shop on-site and many, many, many other projects on the to-do list, my knitting time has really been shrunk down to practically nothing.

However, living here has not only afforded me to learn, work and live all in one place but it has also given me the opportunity to sell my Hand-Knit Sushi Roll Pillows© in the store here. I am not abandoning my Etsy shop, but rather turning my attention to stocking the store here and the farmers market first.

I have my reasons:
  1. Less packaging for shipping=less waste
  2. Less gas to get to the Post Office, which is a trek as we live in the mountains
  3. I've already offered my goods worldwide for almost a year and a half, so I feel it's time to network face-to-face with the local community
I am still accepting custom orders in my shop and will be listing pillows periodically.
