Trouble with Trebles

This blog is to keep track of my knitting, other craft projects, and the weird bits of life that don't fit anywhere else.

UFOs to FOs

I finally seem to be making some progress on my knitting projects. One of my New Year's resolutions was to make more time for my knitting. I have to admit that I wasn't having much luck initially, but lately I've been taking my projects with whenever I can, and doing things like knitting while my students take their exams and during meetings. As a result, I give you RJ's Yellow Anouk (Ravelry Link) and her birthday dress.

Yarn: Bernat Handicrafter Cotton in colorway 56 (yellow), Lily Sugar'n Cream in white and hot verde
Pattern: Anouk by Kate Gilbert in size 3 months
Changes: None, I knit the pattern as written, but my gauge was a bit loose so it came out big (good thing since it took me so long to finish)
Yardage: 2.5 skein (200 yards) yellow, half a skein of the white and green (60 yards), and a small amount of the orange
Needle: US 6
Time: Started April 2008 and finished February 2009
Notes: This was a lot of fun to knit. If I hadn't had the small infant to take care of, it would have been a quick knit too (but of course without her then there would have been no point in making it ;). My color combo is a little less bold than the original, but I like it's cheerful, springy feel.

I finished this just in time for RJ's first birthday! I plan to have her wear it for her party tomorrow. I will post photos next week of her party and another FO.

RJ looks beautiful in that little dress. I've seen a couple of craft sites that have little dresses framed as decorations. When she outgrows it, it would be perfect for that. You won't believe that she was ever that small.

So pretty! I can't believe RJ is already a year old. Best wishes to her for a wonderful year!
