I made a Little Sister’s Dress for an upcoming little sister. A friend of mine is having a baby girl, due about 3 weeks before mine, and she had a baby shower last weekend. I whipped up this dress in the 6 month size over the past couple of weeks to give to her. The yarn is Laine Du Nord Baby Milk in Light Pink and Dove Gray. I got this yarn at Webs awhile back and I think it might be discontinued or no longer carried by them now. It’s a shame because it is SOFT. It’s merino, cashmere, and milk protein for the fiber content. These colors were remnants from the yarn I used for Cocktail(Dress) and I was waiting for just the right baby garment. This is the third time I’ve made this baby dress, and I’m sure it won’t be the last. My only mod was to make the top and bottom different colors.
I have been working on several other projects, but have been lax in blogging since I was at a conference a good chunk of last week. I will have some finished adult socks and matching kiddo socks to display soon, as well as some slow progress on a Breezy Cardigan very soon.
I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S MARCH! Where is this year going? My baby is due in less than 9 weeks at this point and I’m sort of freaking out. The nesting is starting to kick in and yesterday the sad state of my yarn stash was getting to me. It really needs a good reorganization (and probably some destashing, ahem), but I at least made sure it could all fit inside bins and drawers or the current UFO area for now. Closet organization and deep cleaning comes first. Oy.
