I am a geek, for sure.  A few of the things I am geeky about:  the Bee Gees, celebrity sightings, dogs, genealogy, Judy Blume books… the list goes on.

So it should come as no surprise that I’m also a knitting geek and had to purchase custom labels to sew into my finished projects:

labels

These were cheap:  about $27 for 100 labels from Sterling Name Tape.  It took about 4 weeks for the order to arrive, but I’m very happy with them.  The only thing I wish is that I’d ordered them with dark gray lettering rather than the red.  I was going for a look similar to my hollywest logo, which is why I chose the red.  They’re cheap enough where I could order another set, I guess.

Another thing I’m very recently geeky about is the Treasury on Etsy.com.  I’ve gotten a few of them now and it usually takes me at least an hour (and by hour, I mean 3) to do one because I try so hard to make it just so.  My most recent treasury is called Hooray for Hollywood (note: this link will expire around 2pm on October 16) and has a vintage Hollywood theme.  So far it’s getting good feedback but I have yet to be featured on the etsy home page.  The geek in me will keep trying!

Note:  I now have another treasury which expires on October 19.

    Poo I missed it! Sorry. It’s not August anymore though. I thought I read your blog more than that? Hehehe.
    I love the new lables! And yes, you’re a geek. Then again, the best people are.
