I haven't updated this thread in forever, thanks for the post, zebra! And, we just got a Joann in my town, my stash has grown too :P
As you can tell from the ticker, I started a new project a few months ago, and it has kind of zapped my energy for much else. I have finished a few things that I never posted, though!
I made some new knee socks. This pattern was fun, and it's so lacy that a regular 100g skein of sock yarn is enough to complete them!
The bows are made with fold over elastic. The pattern called for ribbon, but there is no way that would be comfy! The FOE is comfortable and keeps the socks up just fine.
I knitted and felted these ballet slippers. They could stand to be a bit longer, I don't like the way they pull on my big toes. The top edge came out too high for my tastes, so I trimmed it back and then bound the edge with the polka dot bias tape. It worked ok, but the edge got a little stretched out when I was doing the binding, so it doesn't sit quite flush with the foot. I want to adjust the pattern and try again sometime.
And I knitted these two cute little things. I want to eventually have a whole bunch of little things to display on my mantle, and change out for each season, so this is a start.
Last, I made this newborn size sleep gown. I sent a picture of it as an announcement to family when earlier in the pregnancy. I want to make a big stack, but the new Joann doesn't have the right fabric, and I can't even find it on their website! I am crossing my fingers they didn't do away with the line :/
That leaves 9 more for the year! It might be a stretch, but I think I'm getting my energy back.
Where is everyone else? Doing any gift-making for Christmas, yet? I really need to get on that!
