YOP Week of 21st of December – Red Dress part 8 and another FO


Happy holiday season, everyone!

I finished the main bulk of the work on my dress:


Yay! The plan for now is to weave in the million ends there are (hate this), wash and block it, and decide what’s next. I am thinking if I need to make it a bit longer and how. I also feel I need to finish the neckline in some way, but not sure how. Any ideas?

I also have finished the scarf for my daughter – I meant it to be a cowl, but I run out of yarn to make it  comfortable double loop.


So the set is now finished.


Below is my updated list – I have added a few things…

1. Tango tunic – cancelled
2. Red cotton dress for me – WIP, final stages

3. I promised my man a hat and a scarf for the winter.
4. I hope to make a hat and possibly a scarf for me from the yarn I dyed myself for the first time – now changed to a hat and a cowl for my daughter – DONE

5. Fingerless mitts for my daughter. DONE

6. another beach dress for me
7. Chunky cowl for my mom. I got the yarn for it – DONE
8. A top for me….

9. Very not sure, but may be this afghan for a friend who loves social games.

10. my Comfort Blanket – WIP

11. a few dishcloths – one done

    It’s looking fabulous – well done! I can offer no suggestions as to how to finish as I am not a crocheter (that is a made up word!!) – but I am sure someone will be able to offer advice :-)
