1.2 The Pussy Hat
2016 was a HUGE turning point for me. I decided to quit a pretty cozy salaried job to pursue an app -- oh millenial ambitions. Nothing was really working out, but I made a choice that it was time to do something on my own -- the problem was that I had no idea what it was. Bartended, made a couple cleaning clients, but nothing I was really passionate about.
A cold NYC night happened and I had no winter hat. Winter hats cost money, usually around $15. I had $10. I thought to myself, why don’t I just make one (hehe, but really). Got the cheapest yarn, a hook, and made a black hat. It was awful. It was a restart.
A couple social media posts and a planned Women’s March later, a friend asked me to make her a Pussy Hat. And boom, there was my first sold item. And an entryway to limitless possibilities.
