What would be the biggest help for a Craftini like me? Getting custom requests in early. Like months early. Custom items take time to make. I put my entire heart and soul into what I make--so when you get a Craftini Marini item it is always made with love and with the best craftsmanship! So, I was thrilled when I got a custom order in January for a holiday item! It was an order for four Christmas stockings and I had a BLAST working with this client. She wanted stockings for herself, her husband, and their two cats--the best part was that I got to match the cats' stockings to their fur color!
She wanted something fun and stripey for herself. I worked with two different greens, two different reds, and white to create this fun, whimsical stocking!
For her husband she wanted something that looked like a candy cane with a green toe and heel. I used the darker green and red from her stocking for his so that they would coordinate. Love the way this came out!
This was such a fun project! These were actually my first time knitting Christmas stockings and my first time doing stranded color work. I know that there will be more of these in my future! Keep and eye out on my Etsy shop to see if any show up there for the holidays!
