A look back…

So, sales have not been good at all, almost completely because of the poor advertising of the fair, bringing in next to no tourists to the site. There are several things I could complain about, but won’t right now. It was not only us who suffered these past five days, but just about every other […]

Getting ready for Siem Reap

Things are completely out of control busy right now. Writing this short blog post will be my ‘down time’ for today… My amazing friend, regular partner in crime and artist extraordinaire designed this banner for us.

If you knit, you’d know the site. Ravelry is kinda like Facebook but the focus is on knitting and crocheting. There are patterns, a […]

The year that was…

It’s still early enough in the New Year to look back at what 2009 was for Cambodia Knits and what we’ve accomplished. Back in June, I was lucky enough to find 5 knitters, two of whom were already very experienced, to start up CK. We had many challenges in translating patterns into Khmer, learning new […]
