Last week I also finished Lola's Tikki Rainbow dress which I am beyond happy with. The watermelon yarn knitted up like a dream and I LOVE the way the colours have pooled near the top. I know that some people don't like pooling, but I love the effect it has had on this little dress...... what do you think??? I still have to block it, but I am not actually sure what that means, I think that it is going to stop the moss stitch edge from curling up though. You can see my finger holding it down in the photo. Not sure what the sizing is like as my little Lola has been unwell and definitely not in the mood for modeling. I am so pleased with it and it was really easy if anybody is thinking of giving it a go.
Thought that I would also show another of my WIP's, a soon(ish) to be jumper I am knitting using Cleckheaton Vintage Hues. I saw this jumper knitted up at Knitworld and knew I had to try to knit if for myself. This is what Gabes calls a 'knitting in the dark project', very easy to knit while watching telly. No hurry for it though as won't be needed until Autumn (I am being very optimistic about having a fabulous summer..). I'm finding the yarn a bit of a pain to knit with as it keeps breaking, it's such lovely colours though that I am going to stick with it.
I had to post this photo of Talia, my friend brought round her very first bunch of flowers. She was really thrilled and felt very grown up. They are the most beautiful bunch of Gerbera's in different shades of pink, gorgeous! What a wonderful sweet thought....
Oh yeah, and the same very kind friend also brought me this yummy bottle of Savvy as a happy (surviving) being mum to Talia for 4 years pressie. It's going on top of the cupboard until I can actually drink it as I am still nursing and then it's mine all mine!!!!!!!
