day 29

a short while ago my mum was after a quick knitting project, this pattern immediately sprang to mind -not for its quickness, although it appears to be a straight forward pattern, but because it had been on my to knit list for a while & i had the yarn ready & waiting, it seems to have been a straight forward pattern & the outcome is a very sweet dress for little O, she knit the age 4 size, using DK yarn, but on the smaller needles, the dress fits fine but is a little long, so O can do some growing! the yarns used was the sublime soya cotton i'd had for a while, you can see the rest of the notes over on my ravelry page

  1. That dress is beautiful, how nice that your mum can do that for you! I would like to knit something for myself this year, I am not much of a knitter but always seem to like the most complicated things - typical eh?!
