I want to be an artist -Tokuko's knitting work history 5-
Earning 60,000 yen from knitting was a very difficult task for me at the time, so I decided to make up for it by dispatching data entry staff three times a week.
I was working in a skyscraper in Roppongi Midtown, but it was just a stopgap job, so I enjoyed working in the city. Nao-san was actually on the same floor, but we'll talk about that another time!
While studying knitting, I spent days seriously thinking about how to achieve this 60,000 yen with just knitting. "Selling knitted works" was my first idea of earning money. At that time, there were no big events for selling individual handmade works or an online shop system that could be easily uploaded.
As a trial, I made small pouches and accessories and tried to sell them at such places, but of course they didn't sell very well.
When I was looking for what to do, my husband decided to transfer to the Kansai area. I moved from Kanagawa where I lived for two years to Kyoto.
The dispatch contract just ended, and I got the qualification, so the timing was good, but I couldn't use the Kanto handmade sales route list I researched using the Internet. It's time to move again!
