Custom Fun

I had a new customer with a special order in sosorosey this past week.  She found a bowl that she loved, but was hoping to have it in a different color.  She wanted something in green, blue, or purple.  I hunted around in my fabric stash and sent her some photos of different options.  She chose one right away- this lovely tie-dyed cotton in deep purple and indigo.

I'll tell you a secret- I made this bowl twice.  I used a larger hook the first time around and didn't care for it at all.  So, the next night, I took it apart and crocheted it again with the hook I usually use for these.  Much better!  I LOVE the way this one turned out, and even better, so does my customer!  Nothing better than a happy ending :)

This is just gorgeous, Jennie!

It's wonderful that you're able to take something apart and try again if you don't like it the first time. :-)
