A Giveaway?

I'd love to do a giveaway to get some help spreading the word about Baby Beanies! I'm still thinking about what to do, but I'm thinking $10 of store credit. That way the winner can order pretty much whatever she wants. :) When will this giveaway take place and how do I enter, you ask? The giveaway will take place when I reach either 150 fans on Facebook or 150 followers on the blog. To enter, all you have to do is be either a fan on Facebook or a follower on the blog--which obviously means, if you're both, you get an extra entry. :) So tell your friends!

A Clemson Beanie

Here's a custom Clemson hat I just finished. I hope I got the paw right--you'd think I'd know after living in South Carolina for three and a half years. :)

Some Recent Customs

Here's a few custom orders I've recently finished.

A "Logan" hat for a fellow Junebug baby:

And some "Rosemary" hats for twin girls and their big sister.

Unfortunately Logan has been working on his top two teeth and has not been sleeping very much. I'm struggling to stay true to my one-week turnaround time, but I'm trying my hardest! Thanks for all the orders!

A Few Things...

I've been busy working on orders, and I'm loving it! Keep them coming! I just wanted to pop on here to mention a few things I've thought of.

Care Instructions: Please only wash your Baby Beanies by hand--I'm not sure how the appliques or pom-poms would hold up in the washer or dryer. They would probably be fine, but I'd rather not take the chance. :)

Turnaround Time: Right now the turnaround time is about a week, but it might get a little longer. I try to get things knitted as quickly as possible, but I do have two boys who sometimes don't quite cooperate. :) Also I want the hats to be perfect, and sometimes that means getting halfway and then having to start over.

New Products: I'm hoping to add more in stock products when I get the time, but I'm also hoping the orders don't slow down. :) If you're interested, feel free to order custom headbands ($3), legwarmers ($8), dish cloths ($2), scarves ($7), coasters ($6 for set of six), or baby capris/pants ($10). Those are the things I've made in the past and know I can make well. I'll be experimenting and adding more things as I have time. If there's something specific you want, let me know and I'll try it! :)
