Monday's Feature: Esra

Meet Esra of Knitella.


 
 
 

AE:  Who are you?   
E:  I am Esra, and I am a knitter :D
AE:  What is it that you do/make? 
E:  I make long scarves, circle scarves, shawls, hats, gloves, headbands, hairclips, little blanket, and I am always learning new things and transforming them to products :D I still don't consider it a job. I just enjoy it a lot :)
AE:  How did you get started/What is the motivation behind your work?  
E:  I have always enjoyed knitting, but it was on and off. I would get a knitting urge, do it for few weeks then leave it. Until I finished my first scarf, which took me about 6 months to complete. I really loved the fact that I finally had something I did by myself. So, I started doing more scarves! It just did few for myself, family and friends.

Last summer, I had the longest break since I started my education (yes longer than my primary school holiday!) it was four months. I couldn't just sit there and waste time. I kept knitting. My friends and family really encouraging me to start selling. I went to my first community/charity sale, and I sold three scarves that day! From that point on, May 2011, I decided to take knitting to the next level, and do it professionally. 

A friend of mine, Mel Watkins, introduced me to Etsy, and that opened a big virtual door of possibilities! :D

Now, I am a committed knitter (trying to be a crocheter as well) and I have my knitting business called Knitella.
AE:  Where can we find your work? 
E:  For products:

  3. Beautiful work. I love the striped scarf!

    I had electric heat in my old place and each room had it's own thermostat. It was wonderfully efficient! I hope to get my replacement soon...it is leaking again today!!!! ~Val
