Six months of knitting and when I finally slipped it over her head-- she twirled~~
The last row had almost 1000 stitches --- it took me over 2 weeks just to knit the bottom ruffle~
Stuff you might want to know--
Tilli Thomas Salt and Pepper yarn - you can find it here.
(try not to be shocked when you see how much it cost!) (and please don't tell the Gardener how much it cost!!) Just kidding --- he already knows!!
Mac and me - Silk Summer Dress pattern -- you can find it here.
***I made this dress in a size 2. The pattern calls for 3 skeins of yarn for this size. 3 skeins was NOT enough to finish the ruffles on the dress -- I had to go back and buy a 4th skein --- ($$$!!!) You will probably have enough if you make a smaller size -- but I wanted to make this dress when she was big enough to TWIRL!
My Sacred Yarn Room looks like a Harvest nest bomb exploded inside! The nests are going to be absolutely gorgeous! If you are on the LIST-- you can start getting excited right about now!
Here is your first official sneak peek of the yarns~~
I'm over half way through this stage of the "nesting" process. In a few more weeks -- Mary and I will begin to work our magic~~
I don't want to think it so -- but already, the summer is flying by SO quickly. The colors of autumn will soon be here. I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful days. Don't mind me-- I'm just buried here in the craft room underneath all this beautiful yarn!!
