So here we are again, at the end of the YOP year. For those of us that run from July to July, this is the (often surprising) review post.
I thought I would group my finished objects this year before looking at my list. So first up are some of the garments.
From the top and clockwise are Waving Lace, Rhombing Around, sunhat for Daniel, Hitofude, Spidey mitts and the Dominique skirt. Of these, the two pieces for Daniel have been a definite hit, and Hitofude and Rhombing Around are my two favorite garments that have been worn regularly.
And so - to check the list.
