Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't been communicating lately. ...I have no excuse...

But I could use your help and advice! My mom is thinking of retiring soon and she'd like to start her own Etsy business (just like her daughter!) just to keep herself busy. She is an ELITE knitter. She's so good, it's incredible. Here's a picture of one of the hat's she's made and would like to eventually make more in different colors to sell:

My question is, does anyone think they would be interested in buying something like this? And does anyone have any suggestions of websites where she could promote her products? DeviantArt does get a lot of yarn-enthusiasts, so here might be one option, but I think Tumblr isn't really the right place to show off hats (not the right audience), and I'm not sure what other websites would give her good traffic.

Thank you so much for your honesty and feedback! My mom is so excited to start selling hats, but I know how hard it can be to build an audience. I just don't want her to be discouraged! Any honest feedback would be super helpful (and she would probably freak out from excitement).

Hey there! Thanks for visiting my deviantArt page. I suppose that means you're somewhat interested in my silly doodles or crochetted nonsense. Feel free to comment on any of my works or just say hello. Who doesn't love comments?

I'm currently a college student, majoring in things not art-related. My art is just a hobby, though I'm flattered that people suggest things greater.

I kind of take commissions randomly, but I always seem to have some pre-made plushes in my shop, so please check them out! If there's something you really want and are willing to pay for, just message me! I may not always have time, but there's no harm in asking. :)

Thanks for visiting!
