So far I've completed eight GAL projects of my own, with one more still on the needles. That's three hats, a bag, two hippos and two light sabres (and a more surreal project list I haven't made before!). I'm almost halfway through a pair of socks, with hopefully a second one planned before the GAL is over.
However, among all the thousands (and I mean thousands) of GAL-eligible patterns, there are plenty more that have caught my eye for various reasons that I want to mention here, even though I won't make them for now myself.
Next up is the Woodsprite hooded coat by Heidi Atwood-Reeves (mightcouldknits on Ravelry). It's a really cute little jacket, and I especially like the button detail on the back, but I just don't have any little girls to knit for at all. I have sons and nephews.
