I was selected to test knit a spring dress for Dakine Knits. I loved the dress they had done to write the pattern and I certainly have enough girls to knit for. They asked me to do an 18 months. Perfect for the 22 month old in the family. Originally the plan was to have us purchase the yarn for an indie dyer so we used the same yarn but that wouldn't have happened in time for the pattern to be released for those that wanted to knit this for Easter. Enter Knit Picks Swish and Spud and Chloe from stash! I wasn't crazy about the colors I put together until I added the last green stripe. That seemed to finish it for me. There is a shrug and headband in the works to complete the whole outfit. And I finished it 5 days before the deadline. I'm usually asking the designer for an extra day, or week.
And since it was so beautiful out, I tried for some pictures of the older cousins. They were more happy to endure my photography sessions.
