Yesterday was the day I’d been waiting for: no appointments, no other work that couldn’t be postponed… So I dove into hook-handle-making.
By the afternoon, I had made enough hook handles to determine my best practice for future orders. By evening, I had sanded and buffed the daylights out of all of the handles I made. By bedtime, I’d gotten the order form up on the website.
A very very hooky day, if I do say so myself.
And so, without further ado, I am so happy to present: the new Polka Dot Cottage Gift Shop, featuring Made-to-Order Polymer-Handled Crochet Hooks! I’ll be collecting orders for the next week (or until I have as many as I can realistically handle), and then it will be all hooks all the time over here at the Polka Dot Cottage World Headquarters!
I greatly appreciated all of your valuable feedback about these, and am truly looking forward to filling your orders. You can choose your hook size, hook brand, handle pattern, and whether or not you’d like an indented thumb rest. I will have them completed and shipped by mid-December, hopefully well in time for gift-giving.
Oh, and for those of you who don’t particularly care about crochet hooks, I’ve decided to add a little something: you can order custom-made shawl pins and stick pens, too. Stick pens make great teacher gifts, especially in red ink (hint, hint). Enjoy!
