Joining Ginny in her Yarn Along....for the first time in almost 3 years!
I started this gorgeous piece so long ago that I have two problems:
1 - I cannot for the life of me remember the yarn I bought. Hopefully I have enough!
2 - I started making it for Fionnuala when she was 6 and now she's 9 and about 10 inches taller!!
Problem #1 is probably worked out since I have 2 skeins left (untagged of course). Problem #2 is harder but I seem to have found a solution. Make it a shirt/tunic instead of a dress! The pattern is the popular Rainbow Dress. It's been a very easy knit so far and the fact that I can pick it up at any time and throw a few rounds on without looking at a pattern, means it might actually get finished soon.
Oonagh thinks that if I am sitting i should be reading...to her. So for now this is the book I just can't put down. What Do You Do by Mandy Stanley has been a favorite of all four girls. We've been through quite a few copies already. The lovely part is that I know it by heart so I can knit while I "read".
So glad to be back to knitting...
