Knitted Star Trek Dresses (and a few other FO's)

So, I finished a few projects over Spring Break, including a baby gift for some dear friends who are (it might be possible?) even bigger sci-fi geeks than Adam and I:

(Conversation when this was given:
Giftee: "You're dooming our baby!"*
Me, protesting: "No! No! It's a Uhura dress!")

The problem is, I didn't check gauge when I made the dress for their eagerly-expected little girl, so my first attempt ended up big enough to fit an eight-year-old. Which means that my eldest ended up with a new Star Trek dress too:

Happy accident! These two dresses ended up using up a lovely bunch of stash, and were such a kick to make! I used a free pattern off of Ravelry for the dress, and winged the insignia after looking up some pictures using Google image search.

I also finished a pair of socks for me:

And the first of Adam's kilt hose:

One down, one to go!

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell
