To get the most out of these boards, before posting a topic, we suggest:

Scrolling through past posts to see if your question has already been asked and answered. Postings are in chronological order of the date when the topic was first posted. You can also use the SEARCH function to look for past posts about your question.

If you don't see your question addressed, or if you have additional questions, post a New Topic rather than replying to an existing topic. This will increase the likelihood of getting responses to your specific question. Also, try to describe your specific question in the topic subject line rather than "New Knitter" or "Help."

The more information you can provide in your question, the better the responses.

We hope you enjoy the postings on this board and will come back to share your knowledge with others.

There are very strict copyright laws that govern pattern use. Read up on these before embarking on a career. Web sites have been shut down because of infringement of these laws. Craft fairs are routinely monitored to protect copyright holders.

Unless you are a very fast knitter you will probably find that knitting, while being a satisfying hobby will pay you very little for your time. If you are using fine wools to make garments, they are already expensive. Add to that the cost of your time and your garments may be priced out of reach of the public.

At recent craft fairs I've noticed an increase in scarves and "necklaces" made of length of yarn tied together at various points or crammed into jewelry findings. I guess that's one way of getting more bucks for your time.
