Another fair entry is done.
This one for the Baby Dress category. Last year, I walked away with first prize in this category, so hopefully I can do it again.
This time around it’s the Leaf Love dress. It’s a free pattern that only has one size, (0-3 months), but it suited my purposes.
Little Miss Wren has a baby cousin due in November, so after the fair, that’s likely where this will go.
The yarn is once again our Stray Cat – I love it for baby stuff. Super soft, easy to care for (aka washable), and a dream to knit with. The colour is Aquarium, and it’s a little darker than the pictures show.
Since the buttons are on the back (and baby will more often than not, be laying on them), I opted for some flat crystal buttons from the stash. Like the ones on the Dora cardigan, these ones have just a hint of blue.
The back is just plain, and the whole thing is knit in one piece, so the knitting just flew. I had this one done in just a few days. It’s a pattern I highly recommend if you need a quick baby present.
