Well I just returned home from a baby shower for my friend Kelly. So much fun! And I was able to give her the gift knitting so it’s no longer secret!
Pattern: Dress with Eyelets from Debbie Bliss’s Baby Knits for Beginners
Started: February 14, 2006
Finished: March 2, 2006
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Cotton Patiné
Needles: US 3
Size: 3-6 months
Remember in a previous post where I showed a little peek at the dress and I said that I was enjoying knitting with the Cotton Patiné? Remember that? Well, knitting with it was fine with not too much splitting but seaming with it?! Nightmare. By the time you get to the end of the seam, it has turned from one solid strand of yarn to eleven tiny threads that you have to try and keep together. Thank God it was a tiny dress and not a larger garment! But looking at the finished product makes all of it worth it. So cute! I love baby knits! Most importantly, mom-to-be loved it, too!
So now my attention has turned back to my languishing projects like, ahem, Butterfly. And my Fiery Bolero and, of course, the Silk Garden scarf will get some of my knitting time.
