The shawl is slowly growing, but I have just had to start another project from my library to break up the monotony of all those long garter stitch rows!
I decided on this little dress.
I am trying a bit of an experiment, so not sure if it will look OK. I am thinking of knitting it in random stripes of these two colours - off white in Bella Baby Sugar and 'Fruit Tingle' colourway from Happy Spider. Or should I knit the skirt in Fruit Tingle and the bodice and sleeves in off white. Or some other combination. What do you think?
These have both been in my stash for a while. I love when Spotlight has a yarn sale, as you can get some great bargains! I purchased about 10 balls of the off white Sugar last year for $2 a ball.
And the Happy Spider yarn has been in my stash for about four years. I love it so much, I have been reluctant to commit it to a project.
This is Happy Spider's blog/podcast website. I don't do the podcasts - I just love to look at all the lovely yarn colourways. Such as:
This is Happy Spider's Ravelry yarn page.
Well worth a look to see the gorgeous yarns.
And I so love this idea for felt 'paper' dolls from The Prudent Homemaker. I always loved paper dolls as a girl and these are too cute.
Look forward to seeing how you are all loving your libraries this week.
