My Crochet Business

I have been diligently working on finishing up projects and using up yarn. Today I got a bright idea to treat my Crochet Business like a part-time job. That means dedicating no less than 20 hours a week to it. So I worked up a schedule for a set amount of hours per day. Today was my first day on the

schedule and I am happy to say I finisged 4 skeins (yay me). I am hopeful that this new approach will help me become disciplined. In the mean time it will also help me be more successful selling the finished product.

  1. My husband is trying to talk me into selling things I make but I’ve only been at it a few months. I’m definitely not ready for that. Lol
    Good for you for setting a schedule! I’d have to do the same if I ever started to sell.

  2. What type of schedule do you create for yourself? I have a full time job that I often work 12hrs a day give or take. By the time I get home I’m either all for working on my projects orrrrrr staring off at the television. Any tips to balance this work/ work relationship to help my business grow?!
    Best of luck with your endeavors!

    • on days when I work I assign myself minimal time (usually two hours) but I commute to work and I work on crochet on my lunch so I can knock those hours out anytime as long as I knock them out. Any time in front of the TV is crochet time (usually easy projects that don’t require pattern reading). On days when I know I can stay up late I try to put in a minimum of 4 hours because I have already committed to the two hours and it usually isn’t too painful to dedicate another two. I treat it like a part-time job making myself allot twenty hours a week. I have found that once I assign/schedule those hours I am less likely to waist my lunch break socializing (which is tempting). I don’t allow others to get me off track because this is a dream for me and the extra money comes in handy and I know it can be better and depends on me.
