Hello and thanks for visiting my blog. I have been knitting on and off for 50 years and I recently learned to crochet. I love looking for wool bargains and making them into something useful. I mainly knit for charity. I occasionally knit for myself and family members if I find a really good pattern or if they ask nicely!!

Last baby dress....for now



When I returned to knitting just over a year ago, I went into a local shop and bought a few balls of wool.  This was one of them.  I promptly fell out of love with it because it is quite a strange shade...not quite peach and not quite pink.  But it suddenly seemed just right for the baby dresses I have been knitting this month.  I also had the perfect matching buttons and, ta dah, here we have a dress that will look lovely on someone.

I've filed the pattern away now as the novelty is wearing off.  But I will definitely knit it again.  For anyone interested in knitting this dress, here is the pattern  As I have said before, please read the forum notes at the end of the pattern as they explain a counting error in the front bodice.
