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:
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.
