Yarn: Peter Pan DK blue/white variegated
Started: 19th October 2010 and finished 15th December 2010
Size: 8 years
This is the dress that I completed for Bec's daughter. Last night I pressed it all out and seamed it all up, including the pockets. Those pockets were so horrible the way they were sitting, I didnt know if it was my knitting or the pattern but they just would not sit nicely on the dress or look right at all. I was so annoyed with them that I cut them off the dress and threw them out. SO SORRY BEC if you wanted pockets but it truly wasnt meant to be with this dress. Surely there is a way to knit pockets into the dress without having to do them separately and sew them on afterwards. Apart from that I think the dress turned out so cute and I do hope Bec's darling girl likes it too. I will post it tomorrow for you Bec!
Tonight I am off to knitting group and I am hoping that more than 3 people turn up as people always seem to be super busy at this time of year. I have organised a knit night for the third Thursday in January so we should all be able to catch up with each other then! I had knitting group this morning too which was nice. Another lady and myself are knitting the Blossom elephant toy by Alan Dart. Mine is going to be a baby gift for a sweet little girl, if it turns out right. I have also started another little boy jacket for my sister's friend who had her little boy yesterday, 6 weeks early. Hopefully they will be home before the year ends so they can enjoy their little family at home and I can actually meet him too. How exciting with all these new little people around, makes xmas a much happier time! Okay off to finish cooking dinner.
