Just finished knitting a dress for my daughter, which completes my New Year gift for both.
Aaku’s dress was ready by Jan. end but I couldn’t post earlier.
Both the dresses are test knit for chashmerejunkie on Ravelry. Simple patterns, seamless designs, top down with a lot of positive ease.
I had been enjoying sewing lately, had tried a lot of stuff. as expected mostly for my daughters..

a summer dress in needles.
the border colour is bleeding but I like the effect it is giving to the tee 🙂 the knit is fitting perfectly and I like the length. it is a clever pattern from tincanknits worked upside down seamlessly.
Yes she is knitting!! Call me crazy…. when Achu went to see the doctor, Aaku kept asking me what should she do? I had things in mind but if I would start without Achu… she will be grumpy all day saying I only love Aaku not her. so I asked Aaku to make a dress for her doll and I ment a fabric dress, as I was knitting Aaku said she will knit a skirt for her doll! I had to show her…. she did one ribbing row, that means one full row of 17 sts k1p1. 🙂
and what else… if Aaku has done something how Achu will not do that
here is she with her knitted scarf
one month gone and I have nothing much to share…. I am busy between work, children and home. crafts are happening but the pace is so slow and some w.i.p.s lying around the house. the only thing I managed to finish is this dress
Initially I took another lace for the neck but then changed the design …
So the year 2013 is about to end and this is the time of gifting.. I don’t follow the Christmas gifting but still managed to finish up some pending gifting projects and did some quick gifts as well. If you did follow my earlier posts you would remember I was knitting a sweater and was about to quit… I managed to finish it but was not quite happy with the neck and so redid the neckband and now it is ready to be gifted.
and a little quick knit
I was making the same dress as the one for Achu, but I had less of the solid colour fabric, so I choose to use it in body. Now I was cutting the front and halfway I realised I did something wrong! I forgot to fold the fabric twice … So I had to make up for the mistake and this came out as result!
This Saturday afternoon was well spend in creating a dress for my daughter.
And the final touch to the look
