Recent Knitting

I've been offline for a bit - Here are the latest knits.

Longies and a toy turtle for a friend's little girl - these are knit out of Hobby Lobby's Hush-a-bye 50% cotton / 50% acrylic yarn. She uses pockets and a couple of her kids are allergic to wool so she asked for some other yarn to be used. This is a gift for her little one's first birthday.

A smocked sun dress for our new little one - I used the stitch pattern from the Mae Day dress on the top - it's just a standard smocked knitting stitch - but added stitches under the arms, knitted it in the round and did not do increases as the pattern called for and did a lace edging. I made this slightly big and long so that it will be a long dress now but also will fit probably when she is a year old as a little top.
