If you are looking for a cute accessory to your outfit this is the scarf you need to get. I found this at Boutique-a-holic Handknits on Etsy.

"Casual or formal – Depending of your clothing, the scarf can be used as casual or formal. You can use it as everyday wear,or put it over a nice formal dress. " She also can make this scarf in other colors if you her to. I asked Nevita a few questions to get to know her better.

How did you get started?

I live in Bulgaria, it's a small country in south-eastern Europe where only a small number of people know that there is such amazing place like Last year, a friend of mine was searching for online stores for good Christmas sales. She told me about this place. When I started searching in etsy stores, I got lost in so rich choice of handmade items. I always wanted to open a store and sell my hand knitted scarves and baby clothing. However, my full-time job, and pregnancy didn't bring enough confidence in this picture. When my beautiful baby daughter came to the world, she brought new hope and faith in myself. I found knitting section and crochet section and I was happily surprised that someone is selling so many handmade creations. At that time the idea that is an easy way to create and maintain shop came into play. With etsy, I figured, I wouldn't have to care about renting and maintaining a physical shop, and at the same time I'd have flexible working hours. Now I stay at home as mother, enjoy spending time with my baby daughter, my knitting, and promoting my shop via interesting online tools.My etsy shop is

What is your favorite creative thing to do?

I learned to knit and make gobelin tapestry, when I was a child. I went to my grandparent's home, during school offs. My grandmother thought me different handmade techniques, such as knit, crochet, sewing and others. During the years, I was paying more attention to knitting and gobelin tapestry, and found I enjoyed it a lot. It became my hobby, and after my daughter's birth I decided I was determined to share the products of my passion with people around the world.Fir example this gray capelet is one of my favorite projects

How long have you been doing this?

I am new at etsy, but I am knitting for about 10 or more years.

What is something most people may not know about you?

I like the Human Resources area and I am finishing my masters degree in Human Resources management. I enjoy interacting with people.I love to travel and regularly organize small trips through my country.
