Old dress, new dress

Last week the girls wore their "pretty" dresses for skating. Charlotte's coach wanted to see how her dress would look on the ice. Felicity just didn't want to be left out.

I've since finished the beading on the sleeve cuffs.

More and More

I just can't stop knitting longies! I love longies, and I guess I just want to be sure my baby will have a dresser full of them. That's all. Can you blame me?



These are a little different than the ones I did before, but I like to experiment and try new things (in very small doses I like to try new things).

Shop open till cleared out





I decided to re-open my shop and list the dresses I have sitting here. I will not take any custom orders, but would like to sell off the dresses and snow beanies I have left over from last year. I'll probably list one thing a day, and just keep them up till they're gone. Get em while they last!

Tomorrow, You're only a day away... and now the dress is mostly finished. Just a few finishing touches and this season's skate dress will be done.

Seed Stitch Longies

These longies are for my baby (yes, I want to be sure I'm well stocked this winter). This pair was made utilizing some new wool yarn my grandmother gave me. It was spun in Colorado and is nice and thick.

The ribbing has faux cables and the main body of the pants are seed stitched. The cuffs (legs and top) can be folded down for little baby and unfolded to accommodate growth.

I put a few short rows on the top and bottom of the seat area to allow for extra room in the bottom area, and I'm pretty please with the turn out.

Pink Lace Back dress


Originally, I planned to make this into a shirt, but decided I didn't need a few inches of left over fabric and made it into a summer dress instead.

This top resulted in a few mistakes though. I've been working on making this top design without seams. So I've been finishing it off in the round. Well, I made the lace back a little too long, so the front hangs down too low. I could have compensated the front by starting off with fewer neck line stitches too...so this was a learning experience piece. It's nearly befitting that after an hour my daughter pulled on one of the tops treads and made a nice sized snag. Hopefully, it will work it's way back out, but if not, just chuck it up to her trying to unravel my mistake.
