FO: Red Diamond Cabled Dress
I wanted to show everyone the very first item I had knitted since college....let's not ask how long ago that was...lol.
I fell in love with the dress when I noticed it on the cover of Vogue Knitting Magazine. I figured, what a way to get back into knitting! It was challenging and fun at the same time.

The dress was made for my neice, who is modeling the dress.
