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?
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.

The Knitrepreneurs episode 2 is now available on YouTube…Jess and Pru get excited about knitting biz (as usual) and the (official) Chicken of Wisdom drops some purls.
The Knitrepreneurs is two Australian entrepreneurs, who also happen to be knit wits, talking about the business of knitting and their knitting businesses!
Swatching is a topic that often divides knitters: when should you swatch? Pru argues there’s no need to knit a swatch…you can always frog it, right? Or gift it to a friend who will hand wash it and dry it flat in the shade every time.
