Week #7

Oops, this week is a bit late, but I've been hard at work!

I finished the triplet outfits, and just in time! The day after the mommy-to-be received them, she went into labor and had her little beauties. I can't wait to get pictures of them in these outfits!

I'm also 90% finished on two Cowboys' football themed helmet hats, and just finished this Miami Dolphins inspired football hat (the pictures are dark since it's night.)

And I also did this custom requested hot pink minion inspired hat this week! 
I really enjoyed doing this one, it's absolutely adorable!

I had to make a cut off date for custom orders, as I need to make sure I can get everything done in time before my due date. October 31st will be the last day, since I currently have a 4-5 week turnaround time with the amount of orders I currently have and I'm due on 12.12. That cut off date apparently got quite a few people who've been waiting to order to make their move, as I gained 4 or 5 more orders this week! I hate to make a cut off date because it's so much fun to be getting pictures of happy customers (I'll be posting more next week) and hearing how everyone really loves their hats, but hopefully when I open back up early next year I'll still have my followers!

Week #6

It's been a busy week of crocheting!

First that had been finished were a matching set of blue ribbed cable hats for a two year old and his upcoming baby brother:

Next was a baby polar bear hat. For this one, I used two different kinds of fuzzy yarn to make the fur and another white yarn to add the details:

After that, I have been very busy doing my triplet order! As of today, I'm about 2/3rds of the way through it! The girls' outfits are finished and I'm working through the boy outfit currently:

Week #5

This week I've been working on two large orders at once, so not much is finished yet. I'm about half way through one and about a quarter way through the other. A lot of this week was put on hold trying to track down the yarn I needed - four stores later, and I have something pretty darn close to what I was looking for.

I did finish this sleepy eyed owl hat for an upcoming baby girl:

Followed by this toddler lavender hat:

I'll have much more completed by next week, since I have quite a few hats I'm in the middle of for these orders!
