Tea Rose Dress in Progress
I promptly cast on this little dress when I arrived home with the yarn. The pattern is from Purl Soho and was released a few weeks ago (maybe months...my time perception is warped). The little girl I baby sit wears 12-18 months size for length (she's a wee one). The largest size in the pattern is 12-18 months. So I went up from sport to dk weight to make the dress slightly bigger.
As you can imagine, I'll think 'this is too big' then I'll think maybe it's 'just right'. I wish I could try it on her! But surprises are for keeping secrets and the mom doesn't know I'm knitting this. This secret is killing me. I want to send in progress photos! Share size measurements! Measure that little chest!
Instead, I'm telling all of you. Anyways, I think this will fit her for late summer, fall and probably into winter. So all is good, right?
The yarn is mostly acrylic with some cotton and it's machine washable. My hands hurt the slightest bit, not too bad so I'll soldier on. It's what knitters do. I bet you my hands would feel better if I wasn't obsessively knitting this pattern.
