For now, it’s a dress

gemini-5Zooey’s second mini Gemini can be worn, but it’s more like a knee length dress.

gemini-8 This is how much she likes me taking her picture. gemini-7The yarn is Shiny Happy Cotton by Wool and the Gang in the color Spearmint. I used almost two full balls. The company sent me this yarn to review ages ago and I finally got around to knitting it. It has many many tiny plies, making for a really smooth and round yarn. It’s pleasant to work with and I think it made a really polished piece. I think it will wear well and a toddler can really put things to the test, so we shall see. Check out my Ravelry project page for some tips on the numbers if you’re wanting to resize the pattern. geminiI had one little fish button that was just perfect for this top. Of course, this made Z want to turn the piece around so the button would be in the front. The original Gemini is meant to be reversible, so I guess she’s just hip to that.  gemini-6It’s more like a Gemini shift dress than a Gemini tee. I kinda love it this way though and am pleased she might actually get to wear it. gemini-2That face kills me. gemini-3I love this kid.

It’s my birthday week, and I’m turning 34, so just for the heck of it all my patterns will be 34% off this week. Use HAPPY34 as the coupon code at checkout. Enjoy!

  1. that little dress is super cute, and of course she wants the fish button in the front, fish buttons are awesome! And happy birthday!!

  2. That color is gorgeous! I follow Wool and the Gang on Instagram! How do you become a yarn reviewer? How long did it take you to knit that gorgeous tee/dress? Is it knit all in one piece? Her face is expressive, lol!

    • They just emailed me and asked me if I wanted to review the yard and I said yes. The dress took me about a month, but I was working on other things at the same time. It is in one piece, modeled after the Gemini pattern on knitty.com.
