Fetching Wrist Warmers and Tea Party Sundress

25 Aug

Last week I finished a pair of Fetching Write Warmers using left over yarn from the Chunky Cabled Sweater I made for J. I made these using the Magic Loop method and also made them a bit longer by adding more cables around the wrist as well as adding a few more rows around the thumb and knuckles.  These will be a nice addition to my fall/winter wardrobe!

Earlier this year, I made a Tea Party Sundress for H.   It was my favorite dress I have made for her thus far.  A few weeks ago, I was horrified to find a few tiny holes here and there.  It looks like some little insect took a few bits.  There have been two items I’ve made for her this year that have been eaten by something or other.  The other being this little polka dot shirt.

So, I made H another tea party sundress using some left over fabric from the Swingset Skirt for the lining and piping and more Erin McMorris Park Slope fabric.  H came with me to the fabric store and picked out the hot pink flower buttons.  She loves the dress.  I made it in 4T hoping she will be able to wear it for a while.

Here she is playing with my phone while her dad took a little snooze in her bed.  The other photo is her showing off her rearrangement of her wall decals.

I am so exited that the new Oliver and S Fall patterns are out.  I’m waiting for mine to arrive!

In the meantime, I’ve started working on the Best Friend Cardigan by Twinkle.

    This is adorable. I love this pattern too, as a matter of fact, I just picked up some corduroy in JA’s, and I am wondering whether or not it will work with this pattern. Great work.

    A tip for moths, try fresh rosemary or lavender in her closet. This keeps them out.

    Thank you so much for the tip on keeping those pesky moths out!

    The Fetching wrist warmers are great. After looking at the pattern on knitty, I think you made a great decision to add the extra round of cable at the wrist. They look fantastic!

    The dress is adorable.
