I think I favor the Elizabethan on the right more than the other. I keep thinking I'd like to make a dress with that same S4022 pattern, but I have deep concerns that it will merely make me look pregnant. Hmmm. Not a good look unless you actually are. (In which case, you should play it up and have fun with it!!)
And made my own bathing suit:
And made a couple of very cozy wool jersey scoopneck tops.
This wool vest was pretty awesome. I wear this with everything from jeans to a pencil skirt and it is just so perfect.
But my crowning achievement is the Little Black Dress.
I got quite a bit made for the kids this year, too. And in fact, I hope to get one more project done for Youngest Son before the year rolls to a close. That's funny. Youngest Son's coat was the last finished project of 2011 and it looks like he's going to get the last project of 2012 as well.

Jordan got shirts. I really need to expand my repertoire for him.
Josh got a new vest.
Youngest Son, I'm afraid, got only his usual pants and shirts, which I didn't bother to photograph. I'm glad he's getting the last project -- he deserves it.
Daughter got a few dresses, though truly not as many as usual. Okay five is slightly more than a few but it's still less than usual.

But my favorite project for her is the Burda coat. I just need some better pictures, because the ones I have are persistently lackluster.
As far as knitting projects go, I did finish these fingerless gloves.
And my husband got the knitted socks he had been waiting so patiently for me to finish. Merino wool and bamboo blend -- the most scrumptious yarn ever.
That's my year in review, and I'm pretty happy with it. Now it's time to put away last year and look forward to a bright new year. What will we do? What will it bring? Only one way to find out. Roll on 2013.
See you there.
