Toddler Dress

This dress turned out just too cute! It was really easy to knit (yeah, it's from a "beginner" book) but with the eyelets and back button placket, it makes it look a little more sophisticated.

Pattern: Dress with eyelets from Debbie Bliss's Baby Knits for Beginners.

Yarn: Debbie Bliss wool/cotton in pale blue
(The photo is not an accurate representation of the actual yarn color.)

Recipient: Victoria, the one-year old daughter of a colleague (made back in April 2004.) Alas, it doesn't fit her anymore, and I don't have a picture of her wearing it, but I promise, it looked adorable on her!

Below is a view of the back.

On the left is a felted lunch-bag style purse. The handle acts as a drawstring of sorts. The "G" panel is also an exterior pocket.

Date: 2004

Patterns: I don't remember!

Yarn: Brown Sheep Bulky for both, I think.

Below is a tote with sewn on handles. It biased when it was felted, and had to be stretched and pulled a lot. Actually, after I took the picture, I cut off the flap and resewed it in the correct position, because it had gone so askew! It's really pretty ugly. . . oh well, my first felting project has left room for improvement!


Project: LGT (Little Green Top) for my oldest daughter

(It was supposed to be a birthday present, but it took a little longer than planned. . . like a year or so. . . therefore, it turned into a college graduation present! )

Date: Finished summer 2005, started a year and a half before!
(Can we say "Procrastiknitter"????)

Pattern: Jenna Wilson's Little Black Top from Stitch 'n Bitch

Yarn: Classic Elite Provence

Little Sis's Jumper

Little Sis got some summer duds, too.

Date: Summer 2005

Pattern: I don't remember, modification of several different patterns.

I like this yarn for kids' clothes -- super inexpensive, all cotton, soft to knit with.
