Hi-ho, hi-ho, to another week we go!
After a few days of gorgeous fall weather, we're sadly experiencing some rain and chilliness in my neck of the woods. When I woke up this morning and saw a wall of grey, I decided it was going to be a pumpkin coffee day from Dunkin Donuts. Life has been grand ever since.
So as I sit here sipping my autumnal treat, I thought I'd show you some photos of my latest completed custom order:
My customer wanted a black headband with detachable maroon flower. I had a fun time making this because I don't usually get to mix up the colors and I thought they looked great together.
I also used the cable cast-on this time around instead of the usual long tail cast-on. I had been having issues with the cast-on side being too tight, especially now that I use the super-stretchy bind-off. Now, both edges lay flat and even, and it's even a little stretchier. Woohoo! It just stinks that it takes a little bit longer to do.
In other news, I got another custom order yesterday and have now surpassed 100 orders in my etsy shop. The start date says 2007, but I didn't really start selling until sometime in 2009. I consider 100 orders a huge milestone and want to push myself further once classes are over. I swear, I'm diving in head first in the new year. Lots of new products and ready-to-ship items will be coming your way :)
Aaaand, if you'd like to order something custom, now's the time. I just redid my order form. This year, I may close down custom holiday orders early just so I can get everything done for my personal gifts. We'll see what happens!
