11-year-old Snyder started knitting two years ago. A year into her hobby she decided to turn it into a money-making enterprise.
According to Forbes, she now sells 12 items a month, including knit purses ($10), cellphone socks ($6) and coin pouches ($4). She pays $3 per bundle of yarn, enough for 12 socks, which each take three or four hours to make.
