Yarn Along, July 10



I finished the knitting part of Rosie's Rio dress!  I made a strange mistake in the back and decided not to unknit it back, so although it calls for buttonholes and little buttons, I will be making button loops and buying little buttons (I'm thinking... Peter Rabbit?) and I still need to block it and will try to get to that later this week if I can, but I just couldn't wait to throw it on her!  It is stretchy and roomy and will fit through the fall I think.  If our weather wasn't so hot now, it would do nicely right now as well.

  3. Hmmmm--I commented earlier and it isn't showing up now? Anyway, that color is gorgeous on your beautiful little brunette. For sure this will fit her throughout the fall-it looks plenty roomy. Give her a kiss from Mimi--oh how I miss her!

    1. Hm, I don't know what happened with the commenting, but thank you - I think the color is lovely too, even more so in person. The yarn is a little uneven in places but I expect blocking will fix that. Love you!

  9. Yours is the second "Rosie" in that dress that I've seen. You're making me fall in love with it and it might just become one of new baby knits.
