FO Summary
Ok long time no post and I'm really sorry but hopefully it can be understood. It was a) the week between Xmas and New Year's, and b) I was working like mad to finish 4 outfits. Forgive me?

I almost killed my hands, but everything is DONE! No joke, I crocheted for upwards of 12 hours a day between Tuesday and Friday to complete/start/finish the 3 baby outfits, and then I still had to finish sewing in all the ends of the hooded sweater I'd finished seaming on Monday, plus sew on the buttons.

Progress report:
Monday: go to class to have Nicole show me properly how to backstitch the sides of the pockets. She was very impressed with the invisibilty of my side seams (really invisible, even with a bunch of stripes. When I showed Yannick I said "find the seam" and he says "what seam?"). Come home and spend all evening untwisting each end and individually weaving in the 3 resulting plys to reduce bulk.
Tuesday: go to work alone and work on baby boy blue outfit. Couldn't figure out why I had a size 4 cro hk in the ziplock when the patt called for G and my G hk says (G/4.25mm) on it. Used new hk to finish last rem thing- the ribbing for bootie # 2. Attached said ribbing to bootie base. Held it against old bootie. No way. Undid weaving and seaming and undid bootie to redo with cro hk 4.00mm. Couldn't figure out why I'd used the wrong size hk. Finished bootie # 2 and started baby girl pink outfit. Started crocheting with G/4.25 hk and think "oh no! When I started these outfits in September and switched outfits, I'd made a complete onesie but it was at least 3" smaller than stated. Realized late that I'd switched projects but not checked the yarn, and I'd cro'd a dk wt patt w/ fingering. So now I must have forgotten to switch hks!" I plan to block the hell out of the blue outfit to make it fit, but do pink outfit correct size. I manage to finish the entire back of baby pink outfit, and 1/2 of front. Later I check the book and realize I'd used my 4.00 hk 'cus their conversion table shows that a "G" hk is 4.00 mm. I hate errata.
...more tomorrow...or later...
