WIP: baby dress - now finished
Well I started this back in mid-August, and it's getting near completion. Just as well, as it seems to be a good fit now, so if it takes much longer DD will grow out of it before it's finished. I just joined the shoulders on the weekend - yay!

It's based on this pattern, except with a different yarn and gauge, no stripes, in a smaller size, and knit in the round.

So I still need to block it and pick up stitches round the armholes. I've never knitted in the round before, so how do I go about blocking it? (I'm fairly new to blocking too .)

Would you just look at that curly hair? And those eyes? And the widdle cheeks? What a total cutie-pie! How old is she?

Oh, and nice dress.

I saw the dress and thought.. I hope it's warmer where she is than where I am! Then I saw you were in Sydney, so realized it's summer there!

Great summer dress. Your daughter is adorable.

Oh yes, it's warm here!

Actually being wool, the dress is a bit too warm, but I'm intending to use it more as a pinafore/jumper (ie with a shirt under it) for cooler summer days. I was just trying it on for fit in the photo.
