epic custom order

It’s been three months since I told you about a possible custom order of epic proportions. A client was interested in 80 handmade nameplates to use in their office building. I developed the following four custom designs, each crocheted over a 3-inch steel ring:

Ultimately, the client chose these three, and commissioned a grand total of 113 of them!

Needless to say, I’ve been busy for the past twelve weeks. It’s been a challenge, I must admit. There were times when the adjectives I used to describe these frames were unashamingly X-rated. There were times when I swore I’d never pick up a crochet hook again. Even though I didn’t take many pictures of the process, I am pretty sure I will never forget how much work went into them.

Well, now that the client has received the last shipment and I had a chance to take a breath and get used to the thought that I do not have to spend every free second I have crocheting, there are new, even bigger projects on my mind. Think spherical geometry, hexagons, dodecahedrons and other -gons and -hedrons that I can barely pronounce. I promise, what is coming is 10 times more epic than the custom order I just finished. Stay tuned!
