Monogamous knitting is not for me

Who said “Thou shalt not have other WIPs”? ​Who told the virtuous knitter this was the high road and promised her eternal rewards if she can avert her gaze from other plump yarns and shiny tools?

When is your hobby not a hobby, but a business?

The dangers of running your business as a hobby could be the simple annoyance that you now have ten crochet Cinderella dolls filling your spare room. But it could also mean legal or financial troubles or a terrible rift in a friendship because you didn’t abide by terms and conditions or you didn’t bother to clearly outline them in the first place.

This week the Knitrepreneurs consider: When is your hobby not a hobby, but a business?

Why The Knitrepreneurs? We’re a bit different…

There are a LOT of knitting podcasts out there. Does the world really need another one? What makes The Knitrepreneurs different from all the others? Our point of difference is that we cut the crusts off business concepts and serve them to you in knitter-friendly serving sizes. We aren’t business gurus, but what we do know, we’ll share, and welcome others add their insights. And, if you are an indie dyer, a knitting pattern designer, a crochet tutor, a yarn store owner, or aspire to be any of these things, this is the podcast for you.
