I knit this sundress for a little girl who was just adopted by some friends. I really liked the way it turned out and LOVE the yarn, even though it was rather difficult to knit with.

I was really happy to find these buttons, too. They were PERFECT for this little dress!!

:waving: Hi Jan!

It was Plymouth Wildflower DK in a disc'd colorway. :( It's really pretty, but the color was added by wrapping this teeny tiny slubby thread around the yarn, and the yarn was already sorta splitty. So, you can imagine that I had some snags along the way.

Regardless, I was happy w/ the outcome, and thought the color was *perfect* for a sundress. :sunny:

You guys make me feel all :sunny: What a nice way to start my day!!! THANK YOU!


ETA: Jan ... if you wanted some of this yarn, I think the shop I bought it from had several balls left. It's $3.49 for 116 yds, and it's DK weight. Let me know ... I'd be happy to check and see what she has left!

Omgoodness that is adorable! Do you think that Shine would work for that dress? That is so pretty :)

I haven't used Shine, Sandra, but from what I've seen of it, I think it would be a wonderful choice for it!

Oh, I wish I could! We generally see them only @ church 'cause they both usher the same Mass that DH ushers. I guess I could snap a picture of her @ church -- do you think that would be too ... uh ... self-centered?! :lol:

OH MY, THAT TURNED OUT SOOOO CUTE.

Blocking makes a garment professional.
Cool buttons are always a special touch.
