Here's a project i've had done for a while. Pretty Girl has worn it to church several times and I love how super duper soft it is especially since I was it in shampoo and then soak in water with conditioner. Holy cow. I just want to cuddle and snuggle and stroke her when she's in it. It is exactly the same shade as her eyes sometimes. It is a little bit more blue in person but beautiful and so, so soft. Thanks Gramma for sending the yarn and the pattern!!! Here's the link to my Ravelry page.
Here are a few things I finally took pictures of. The dress was actually her Christmas present so it has been finished for a while, I just got around to taking the pictures.
I used the Fiona patter yoke as a guidline when I started the dress. After the yoke I just make it up. I used stitches from the Estonian Knitting book and I really like how it turned out. The main panel on the skirt is actually 4 hearts make out of nupps. They are hard to see in this yarn.
This dress is so soft and warm. I love holding her when she's all draped in snuggly wool.
Here's another Avatrix hat. I made the 18 month size for a friend's little girl. I used fingering weight yarn held double and I think it turned out okay. I'll probably be making another one for my girl as she is growing out of the one she has!
My husband "The Hunk" and I were married in 2001 and we currently have a family of three little boys: "Smartypants", "Speedy", and "The Lug". As well as one girl "The Pretty Girl" who we love and who keep us busy. I love to quilt, sew, read and ready quilty blogs.
