Since December I have been making custom orders left and right. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining, but it has kept me BUSY. Now, unless I get more I am finally seeing a completion of all the orders :) I have made bath mitts, facial scrubbies, six pairs of socks, and now I am in the middle of a sweater and a cute crochet baby bunting.

This is the sweater I am currently making. It is the Lucia Tee from Knit One Crochet Two. The one I am making is with a solid "pomegranate" colored yarn from KnitPicks. It's turning out really nice!
And this is the baby bunting I am making. My cousin had seen a pic of it on Facebook and immediately asked if I could make one for her up-coming grandchild. It is crocheted and she sent me a lovely superwash wool yarn also from KnitPicks for it. It's going REALLY fast and I expect to have it done in the next day or two.
In addition to the custom orders, my new brother-in-law is getting ready to go on a backpacking trip next month. Naturally I was concerned that he have "proper" socks so I am in the middle of making a wonderful pair of socks for him--size 13 in men's. He was thrilled and selected a GREAT tonal green yarn that looks like a really pale camo design. I didn't think I would like the color until I started knitting it up, but it has turned out to look really good! The pattern is a modified (modified because it's a size 13) version of my "Ultimate Basic Sock" pattern. I will try to get a pic up of them when they are done.
Of course there are also the other WIP's and UFO's.....but we won't talk about them lol.
