Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

I've Been Wasting My Talents

Obviously instead of figuring out how to frame knit on needles, I should have been frame-knitting short little scarves, adding buttons, and selling them for $275 to $425.

Grf.

i didn't even click over to the 'about us' page when i saw it on the knittyboard (in the wtf stitch is this thread). Nice.

knitting with 2 needles is undervalued, i guess.

Who would have thought that something as simple as that would sell for prices like that.

But, at least you can tell which colors are more popular from that site, heathered greens and browns! Gives you something to think about, that's for sure!

I didn't believe it until I followed your link. Who in their right mind would pay that much for a scarf? A short, plain scarf. The buttons are a nice touch but unless they are solid gold, I don't think so.
