Winter On My Mind

Senior year of college is coming up, and I'm starting to feel the heat. In the beginning, I've come into college as a Biology major, planning to become a doctor or researcher after graduating. However, as the school year went on, I was becoming less and less interested in science, and spending an increasing amount of time at my home knitting and designing my own knitwear. I didn't think much of it at first, but at the insistence of many, I began to sell the items that I would knit and later opened up a Etsy store in order to sell my wares worldwide. It was not until the middle of sophomore year that I realized that I wanted to put my all into my store and make it my career. Since then, whenever I wasn't studying, I would be knitting and working in my store. However, I always thought I had more time to do things later, to get serious later, etc. Only recently have I really put my everything into a project, which is my 2015 Fall and Winter line.

At the end of the post, I'll be putting up the images I've used in my moodboard as inspiration for my line. This collection will be consisting of knitwear with classic shapes with a little twist, with different and contemporary cables, and ribbing adding interest to classic knitwear such as sweaters, cardigans, and scarves. I'm also planning to use my love of  natural color, the way God meant it to be, by using natural, undyed super soft yarn.

I'm so excited to build up this line for all my supporters to see, but in order to accomplish this, I'll need everyone's help. As I'm a soon-to-be graduating college student, I'm tight on capital to invest into my business, which is why I will be extremely grateful for as many people as possible to help me to make my dreams, designs, and work to come into reality. As of today, I have opened up a "gofundme" page, in order to raise enough money to buy the yarn, store fees, domain name fees, and custom blog design, in order to make this line a success. Since handknits are so expensive and time-consuming to make, I will not be able to offer rewards for each donation. However, please know that any amount will be very close to my heart, and that I will be forever grateful for the support.

Anyways, here's the link to the gofundme page

And I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures as much as I do!
