Hippo Gnu Year!

It's 2010 and I'm still catching up on 2009.
Gilad is now officially 5 years old (the cake is evidence that it's all official and everything):
Adele just keeps getting cuter and goofier:
Jeffrey just keeps getting more wonderful:
And I keep getting crazier, as evidenced by the fact that I'm proposing to do two OWLs for this new Term over in the Harry Potter Knit/Crochet House Cup game, for the glory of team Hufflepuff:
The one above is actually 4 different projects representing 4 different magical creatures: 2 pairs of socks (blast-ended scroots and kappas); a lace shawl (dragons); and a hat and mitts (bowtruckles).
This one is a Fair Isle steeked vest, to be knit in some of my hand spun (natural colored or natural dyed) yarns as shown above.

Thanks, Galiah. I did make Adele's dress-it's a Dale of Norway pattern from a book they did of traditional Norwegian styles for babies and toddlers. It's actually black and cream colored, and it came out just perfect to my delight. And I'm most of the way through my first Blast-Ended Scroot Sock!
