Chapter 142 - In which I show you the last FOs for 2010

So the year has come to its end. May I just ask how that can be possible? This year has just flown by. I quit work, started school, sold my house, bought a new one, moved.. (oh, I also fit in a marital crisis in there..) Phew, no wonder I've spent most of my Christmas holiday asleep. :D Anyhow, I wish you all have had a good year, and have an even better year 2011!

And onward to my FOs, I have lots of them today. :) In no particuar order, I've made Christmas dresses for the girls, the older girl chose the fabric for her dress herself. :)

And the tiny one got a red plaid dress, with tulle at the bottom. You can't really see the tulle, but it's there. :)

As for my school project for this Fall, I made a full-length dress for a friend. It took ages to finish, but I think it was worth it.

Just before Christmas break we got assigned to design, draw the pattern (luckily we got to use a basic pattern for this one!) and make a shirt, also a school project. This is my shirt.

As for knitting, I haven't done much of that, but I have been able to finish two projects, and two more are almost done. I guess those will have to be my first two FOs for 2011. :) I made the lining for the hat I showed you earlier, and it turned out ok. If you don't count the fact that it's now too small for the tiny one. I'm thinking about soaking it and stretching it out a bit. It is made of wool, so it should stretch just as much as I want it to.
And I finished the slouchy socks too. I did switch to dpn's when I got to the heel, because I like my socks to be tightly knit, and working with the mini-circs made my knitting very loose. I guess I just have to work more on my tension with the mini-circs. (The yarn is a lot darker than it looks in the picture..)
And on that note, I'm done for this year, nothing left to do than eat some cheesecake (mmm, Bailey's cheesecake, omnomnom) and look at some fireworks.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
