Finally, I completed something(s)! And took photos. The first is the Lovely Leaf Lace Skirt from Lanaknits, though I didn't use hemp for it (I used Rowan Cotton Glace). The sweater is the famous "Sweater of Many Buttons" made with just under 2 skeins of Simply Soft and some mismatched discount buttons. These are my first real big projects, so I'm feeling very accomplished.

i think the buttony sweater is a great first sweater. i could have made mine a little smaller (the one picture kinda shows the neverending armpit) but the pattern is so clear and un-intimidating. i recommend.

Both are just great... but I have to say, I just adore the skirt. I'm not really much of a fan of knit skirts, but this one is so pretty! It's not too overadorned, but the lace is just enough to add some flair to it. I love it in red, too... great work on both of these! Cheesy

I totally *heart* the buttony sweater!!  I like the black against all the multicoloured buttons you used (I'm a button freak!) and now I have, HAVE to knit this (I saw the pattern awhile ago and it was on my to-knit list but now it's a matter of urgency!!) Cheesy
