A few weeks ago I saw a piece in the local paper about The Wayland Depot. It's an old train station depot which sells local handcrafts. They accept items for commission. So I looked through my collection of handknits which had no home/recipient and went on Monday to see if they would accept my hand knits.
When I got there I only had 4-5 items including my Vardon Vest, a few shawlettes and one mini Christmas ornament. When I wished aloud for a computer, one of the staff pulled out her husband's iPad and I taught them the glories of Ravelry. When I showed them my Christmas Wreath, they fell in love with all my ornaments and asked for more.
So, I have been knitting up these mini-sweaters. Next some stockings and more of the snowmen. I don't expect to make lots of money doing this but it is fun to have a place for these to go.
