Knitting: A little dress for a little girl


The biggest item I've knitted thus far in my just over one year of knitting

I've learn't how to read a pattern, and a few new ways to wrap yarn around needles to get some rather cute end results.

The pattern I followed for this dress is the Oriental Lily by tiKKI


Its a very easy knit in the round, but on this one I've used a lace hem pattern rather then garter stitch, and i just love the way that its come out - nice and girly but not 'too fancy' (those who know me know i'm not a frills girl - more of a plain jane) even if it looks a tad christmas'y
Heres the RAVELRY page for those whom want more details.



It was a beautiful spring day here today and Beca always likes to help out Dad with the task at hand - new dress or not its all about mucking in to her. Our cheeky wee monkey!


I'm so happy its done - doesn't she look impressed!
