I want to be an artist -Tokuko's knitting work history 8-
After writing my first pattern, I started working on creating my own website and selling kits.
At that time, it was quite difficult to make a good website using a Mac without any knowledge of HTML, and to add a shopping function. However, at that time, I frantically searched books and the Internet on my own and launched my own website, which I feel led to my future work.
Yes, there's nothing you can't do on your own!
Kit sales have also started at room amie, and I believe that some customers have come to know my name there. Thank you so much for supporting me for so long.
It wasn't until I created the Dot Yoke Sweater that I felt a sense of accomplishment in knitting, so I decided to give up selling my work once and for all.
I had been vaguely thinking about teaching for a long time, but I was on the move a lot in my life, and it wasn't clear what I should teach.
However, by creating an original pattern, I realized that I could change my work into something versatile, and based on this, I decided to do WS.
There was a place near my house where I could do one-time WS, and I had a meeting with the owner to see if I could do it once a month. As soon as I did, my husband's transfer to Kanagawa was decided.
It was about half a year after I came to Kyoto.
