Keeping with my new direction I found a knitter with a brand new [tag]Masters Degree[/tag]. She has a blog (of course – don’t we all) and she is supporting herself with her knitting business at [tag]esty[/tag] and with a new knitting book that will be published in 2008.
I will let her talk about herself in her own words – Her “about me” page reads:
my name is [tag]cosette cornelius-bates,[/tag] although most people call me cosy. i just graduated with my Masters in Christian Studies in theology and the arts, during which i became enthralled with wool, so much so that i even knit/spun/dyed/recycled my [tag]thesis project[/tag]. i am currently running my small knitting business full time, funded by a knitting book that i have coming out in spring 2008: [tag]Knit One, Embellish Too: Hats, Mittens, and Scarves with a Twist[/tag]. We’ll see how long that lasts
Her esty site reads:
Shop Announcement WE’RE MOVING in real life! the shop will be back in late early to mid september.
I’ll be at the ‘[tag]I Made It[/tag]‘ crafty market Saturday September 29th, 2007 it is at the [tag]Brewhouse Association[/tag], 2100 Mary Street on the south side of [tag]Pittsburgh[/tag] PA. hope to see you there!
