At last weeks craft show I got some orders for products I didn’t have. My business card says “If you need it, I’ll make it” and they took me up on it.
I had to make two rings so I made some extras for the next show.
They are in order: Rosewood size 4.5, Cocobola size 4.5, Corian size 6.5 ,4 Rosewood size 6.5 and 2 Cocobola size 6.5. I did not have a mandrel for the small ones so I had to hurry and make one Monday morning to deliver the rings by 1:00.
The corian rings are for a person that collect glass rings. I don’t know if she’ll want them.
The last item is a 5/8” maple crochet hook. The girl in the booth next to me made some fabulous knitted or crocheted items and said that she needed a big crochet hook that did not catch and tear the yarn like the plastic one she had. So I made this prototype for her. If it works, I may make an aluminum one with the same shape. It is coated with lacquer and sanded with 600 grit to make it slick. I don’t know much about crocheting, but I’ll try anything once!!
