My creative space ....

This week the focus has moved from fabric to yarn.  I have crocheted up a whole load of flowers to make into a scarf for me, I've knitted a scarf for Craig and I have knitted a dress for Cassia.


So here it is, being modelled (in the very loosest sense of the word!) by someone who really didn't want to put it on this morning and certainly did not want to put on clothes that it might actually go with!!!!!

There's a few mistakes and I didn't really follow the pattern strictly but I'm so PROUD!!!  I've always been very envious of people who can knit so I thought it was about time I taught myself.  I've been able to make long, straight rows of knitting (aka scarves) for a while but was a bit daunted by shaping, however I took it slowly and achieved this!!!  On to bigger and better things I think.  I guess the knitting bug could be pretty addictive eh?! x

What a gorgeous wee dress and Cassia is too cute for words. Don't you love it when you put in all that effort and they refuse to wear it for a photo? I have one word for you: Marshmallows. Works every time ;o)

It's fabulous! Good on you. I've been thinking about crocheting clothes for a while now but it's still on the waiting list... those patterns are so daunting! Your dress looks wonderful :) Kx

I found your blog from Cotton Kiwi. I recently started knitting again and made a wee dress like that for my niece. You've done a great job. Catherine x
