I just completed a lovely little post over on my SAL site. I forgot to mention that posting is getting harder because my active toddler is into everything and it isn't safe for me to leave her unsupervised while I post here.

Pictures and projects to come!

"This is the Dress that Never Ends..."

This was a project that I started over 18 months ago. I called it "the dress that never ends." I started it several times and ended up locating one extra ball or yarn in the correct dye-lot that was needed to up-size it since Miss Knotty was growing faster than I was knitting it.

Well I sewed up the final seam Friday night and the same for the bolero, so I can't call it that anymore! I loved this pattern from the time I was pregnant and said that if I had a girl that I would make it for her. It is from Debbie Bliss' Baby Knits for Beginners. The bolero is from a different source that I can't recall at the moment. I'm not sure what happened here but it seems to not hang on her well. I'm going to have to take the blame for that. I may frog it and try again or try a different pattern all together. I still have some extra yarn in that color. Anyhow, here is my little Easter Darling and was so proud yesterday to see her wearing something I made!

Easter Girl on the Run!

Finally still enough for a front shot.

Now where were those eggs?

Dig the silver embroidered slippers!

Miss Knotty Has Her Own Hobbies

My girl likes to play soccer, color, watch Curious George and The Backyardigans, run around the yard and the following....

Get in her rocking chair and look at books. She asks to "rock" and usually likes to be left alone with her books. The 2 pillows in the chair are usually thrown on the floor to make room for more books. There is a bookshelf on the wall next to her chair and she'll help herself to a new one when she gets bored with her current title.

Put on a hat. I always loved one, still do, so I'm thrilled that my girl will wear one. She has an old purse of mine that she likes to play with. This morning we were pretending to go shopping. Still clad in her pj's, Miss "Flossie Mae" here looks like she's ready to hit the Wal-Mart at any moment.

I'm busy working

I've been working on my Stash-A-Long and my Lint for Lent projects. What's on your needles? I think I may have to make these for Miss Knotty's Easter basket. Peep show anyone?

Movie Star, Knitter, Soccer Player or Hip-Hop Fashion Stylist in Training?

I say all 4!

Here's Miss Knotty "helping me" wind some yarn into balls. This is the lovely outfit I picked her up from Babies Morning Out wearing. She poured water all over the cuteness I sent her in so her teachers dressed her in her back-up clothes. We walked home from church so I put her sun glasses on since it was a bright sunny day and when we got home she didn't want to take them off. Please note the presence of "Ducky."

Miss K loves a "occa baw" (soccer ball) so a bright cherry red one seemed the ticket. She can throw and kick like a little Mia Hamm! And we think that soccer in a dress is perfectly acceptable.

"What up dog?" Perhaps you've seen this look on Americal Idol or MTV? This is one of the members of Miss K's "dog pound." Dixie is our 13 1/2 year old lab who tolerates most things Miss K puts on her. This day it was hats galore. It's good to share!

More scrumptious things to knit!

If you haven't already, check out the patterns at Just One More Row . They're really great looking and completely innovative. I ordered 3 and am one pleased customer. Jill was great to deal with! I had a little problem with ordering online so we did a transaction through the mail that was lightening fast! Even with the holiday weekend and coast-to-coast travel I had my patterns in under 7 days. These are great looking and incredibly easy looking. I suggest you check her out. I ordered the the Fly Away Free Jacket, Heartbeat Sweater and the Half Moon Bay Sweater patterns.

Took some really great pics of Miss Knotty yesterday that I will post a little later on.

My Lint for Lent KAL started yesterday. Check us out!
