"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!
