What's On the Needles/Hook

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.

Happy knitting!
