Dove Knits

I'm alive, really

Well, I guess I dropped off the face of the earth for a bit there, huh? I guess moving will do that. Were all moved, unpacked, and settled in Cleveland, and I've started my new job, so all's going well. I haven't knit a thing in three weeks until today. Really. Not a stitch.

Good thing I have enough crafty material from the past, huh?

So today I'm showing off a sort-of ensemble I made for my friend S's little daughter. First off, a dress from the same pattern as the toddler dress in my last post:

And secondly, a sweater made in Plymouth Fantasy Naturale (which I won!) from their free pattern:

Not alot to day except that they're all yellow, and the dress was my first time trimming something with ribbon with any degree of success. I'm not a fan of that pattern, though. It's hard to make it neat.

They're both so sweet! Hard to say which I like better.

Congrats on getting moved and settled.

Glad your move went well. It's always hard to get back into a routine after something like that!

Love the outfits - very, very cute!

Glad to see you are settling in and at the new job already. Hope those knitting needles start clicking for you real soon too.

That dress is so cute - great job with the ribbon trim, it looks very neat! And the sweater is also adorable - your recipients are lucky!

Moving is always a stressful time, and you can never find anything, everything's a mess... I'm sure once you're settled back into a routine you'll be knitting up a storm
