Last Minute Graduation Gifts from Crickets
Yesterday, at CricketsHome I received a last minute throw blanket order for a graduation gift (thank you, Marilyn!). It was Monday and Marilyn needed it by Friday.
My customers are often in a hurry when they order from me: "Help! The baby was born yesterday! We need photography blankets by the end of the week!"
That's why I keep as much inventory as
possible made up in advance and on hand, ready to ship. Even for custom
orders, I often knit up popular components ahead of time, so just a
little bit of custom assembly or fringe choices can be quickly
So when Marilyn ordered Monday morning, I
was able to use a brown blanket that I'd already made. I added custom
fringe and it was ready to go that afternoon! Now with any postal luck,
she'll have it in New York in plenty of time.
If you're under a time crunch, please just
let me know your deadline and I'll do what I can do send your goodies
out post haste! :)
Oh and would you like to see that blanket (I love how it turned out)?
