I may have mentioned this before but I absolutely love creating commission pieces. There is something about the process that delights me but more than anything else I love the response from the person that either ordered the item or that received the item.
A few years ago I was commissioned to creating this queen size afghan – bedspread – blanket. It was a monster of a thing to create because it was worked in one piece for the most part. And that gets warm when you are working under that blanket and then it gets heavy as you turn the work for each row.
And then I had so much of that colored yarn left that I created another one from the same yearn and this one sold pretty quickly once it was finished.
I haven’t had much leftover yarn over the years from commission work since I’ve gotten pretty good and figuring out how much yarn I need for a project. But it is something I still enjoy doing.
So if you have something you would like for me to create, reach out and let’s talk about it. It can be for yourself, a friend or a family member. Think about giving handmade will usually win over store bought any day.
