Woo!  officially 2011!  I've been thinking about a list for the last couple of days, but I figured I'd wait until today to do real posting.  Some of my projects are "finishing" projects...stuff that is started, but I need to get it totally done...I hope thats ok?
24. sew skirt
25. sew skirt
26. sew skirt

superhooker- I'm sorry, but that just had me in giggles.

hehehe, yeah I want to make myself some skirts, but as of now, I only sew by hand, so each one is going to take a while to stitch...I figured I'd list them seperately, so I wouldn't get too downtrodden!

Step off, I'm doin the hump.

Thanks guys for the comments.

I'm debating what my next project is going to be...I'm thinking the felted balls. The instructions say after I'm done felting the balls to rinse them in a vinegar/water solution...any fiber enablers know why? I'm a bit confused at that part.

Are they just plain ol' felted balls? I don't see why you'd have to use vinegar at all. I never have with any of the ones I've made by hand.

Started yesterday but finished and tasseled today.  Made just because I felt like it so it will probably end up in my Shop the Swap shop.  

1.  Stocking cap -- not true colour, actually a dark, deep red.


Need something crocheted?  I'll swap amis, afghans, shawls or whatever for a box of yarn.  Smiley

My guess about the vinegar/water solution would be to prevent the color from the balls from bleeding. Not sure why else either.

I will be starting a project in about an hour and hopefully will have something to show for it before bed time.

Yay, sunspotted! I guess that means your bathroom is clean, too?

Yeah felted balls from yarn scraps. I'm not doing any dyeing, and all the yarn I have should be color-safe already I think...good to know lol. I think I'll skip that last step. We'll see what happens.

I've closed down my 2010 list... and have still lots to do.  So I guessed it would be a good idea to make a new list with the overdue stuff and projects I am working at now, and see what I can do this year:

1. Red velvet top.
2. Coat.  I want one of those lovely things with wide skirts and fitted at the waist.
3. Trousers.
4. Finish tute for my website.  It's a very detailed one... when I finish this, I'll explain better.  WIP.
5. Finish red dress -WIP.  This is a lovely long silk dress I wanted for a dance.  I fell ill and couldn't finish it or go to the dance, and it's been hanging there in my wardrobe for ages, lacking lining and sleeves.  I think it's time to finish it!
6. Summer blouse -got the most interesting pintucked fabric for it!
7. Corset.  Totally new at this.  One day I'll gather the courage to draft this pattern and go for it.
8. Finish lace gloves - WIP.  I should have tried to make my first pair of gloves out of something solid  .  When I finish them they're going to look so smart, though.
9. Doll.  A biggish one.  New skill to learn here.
10. Ferret plush.  I found a pattern that looks way too cute not to do this! - WIP.
11. Backgammon tokens -I got a box of sculpey for xmas!
12. Case for backgammon game.
13. Fix blue skirt.  It's a very long skirt that got caught in the bus doors and ripped.  The bottom has got a lot of lacey stuff though, so I have to cut carefully and redesign the whole hem.  I just cannot reconstruct the badly harmed old one.
14. Make some paper.
15. Goldwork embroidery - WIP.
16. Fused work doily.
17. Bracelet.
18. Girl with a pearl earring knitted wall hanging. WIP.
19. Tudor rose bag.
20. Crochet striped pullover WIP.
21. Write pattern for Gemini socks WIP.
22. Design summer top WIP.
23. Finish suit jacket.
24. Make a big, huggable object with that plushy yarn that resembles fleece.
25. Design a whole line of knits.

I am sure I'll have a lot more to add to the list.  I just need 60-hour days and maybe I'll manage.
