FO: Emma's Sundress
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!!

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:
