Almost done!

I only have one sleeve to go on the yellow monster! I like the fit of it so far, but I had to add an inch to the sleeve length and to the bodice length. I think I'm going to knit the wool purse next.

Thanks for the feedback and the info.... Anyway, I was really, really scared of my first sock, because

1. Skinny yarn
2. Skinny needles
3. Double pointed. Wouldn't it just fall off?

What do you know, Ms. Tomboy Extraordinaire actually made a freaking sock! So I figure that if I can make a sock, I can do these, too. I don't know what the heck they'll look like, but it should be fun. Anyway, I think it's Fair Isle, or stranded colorwork, not intarsia, most of which looks UGLY to me. Everyone keeps saying that the endpaper mitts are pretty easy, so, guess I'm starting with those.

I'm sort've a yarn idiot, anyway. I mean, yeah, there are cheaper yarns, but it makes me feel luxurious to use that stuff, even if I don't wear designer clothes/shoes and I'm not fashion model skinny (I don't care if someone is naturally thin, like a stick-figure friend of mine, it's those people who starve themselves that bug me) Each to her own.
