Baby Dress

April 11, 2011

After a month and a half’s work, that include a complete frogging because I didn’t know how to purl correctly, the baby dress is complete. I believe this is one of the best things I have ever made.  This pattern is named Baby Dress by Jo Lynne Murchland and I used Lyndon Hill yarn from Bristol Yarn Gallery. It took a little over 2 skeins to complete. The yarn is 85% cotton and 15% silk leaving the dress soft and perfect for hot summer days. It’s a great project for prospective mothers, aunts, grandmothers or just friend. I just wish that the few holes I made would disappear. I never seem to be able to finish a project without leaving at least one mistake visible. I guess it is part of learning. Happy Knitting.

    I firmly believe that a “mistake” is the best way to show that something is really handmade. And, most often the only person that will notice is you. My moto is this, “it’s not a mistake. It’s a designer feature.” (It may have originally come from the Yarn Harlot, but I don’t think she minds if we all claim it as part of our personal knitting mantras.)

    The dress looks great btw 🙂
