I've decided to put my crossstitch on hold for a while and pick up this sweater that has been waiting for me!

FO Zooey Dress/ Eileen Dress

Project Details: Started on February 3rd and finished on April 4th.  It really didn't take me that long, since I was mixing in cross stitch at the time.  I had three balls of delicious sock yarn from Elann (baby silk).  The pattern is called Eileen Dress (although this is more like a long shirt more than a dress).  It is really soft and I think will be good for spring and into summer.  I followed the 18 month size for the top and 24 month for the width at the bottom.  I'll try to post a photo of her in it.

FO Wool Dress!

Simplicity pattern 3673.  Super simple and fast.  Took an afternoon really.  Sorry for the grainy photos.

I had a few yards of wool I bought a while back.  Worked perfect for this!

FO Sleigh Ride Sweater

Project Detail:
9 skeins of Rowan Felted Tweed Chunky - 495 yards.  Size 10.5 needles.  I made the size 40" chest (small).  But it is not 40" at all!  Fits okay on a medium frame.  Started on December 12 and finished on January 22nd.  Fun to knit!

FO Fingerless Mitts

Project Details:
I had a great skein of handspun 100% angora yarn.  It was around sport weight and I did these on size 3 needles.  Only took ~150 yards or so and I invented the pattern as I went.  I think my swap buddy will like them.

FO Kids Hat

Project Details:
Simple Beanie Hat.  Started on January 24 and finished January 26.  Fast knit with hand dyed yarn.  Size 5 and 6 needles.  This is a bit on the tight side - I measured her head to be 17.5" and that is what I knit - but tight nonetheless.  Next time a bit bigger.
