the new yarn.

This is the dress I made with the new yarn.

the new yarn


For those who were asking about the pattern, I posted it on Ravelry.com (I'm BabywearKnittery if you're on there) - the pattern is Little Girl's Sundress or Jumper by Diane Soucy and I found it to be super easy, especially if you already know how to make a sweater or hat.

You can see more of my knitting projects at Ravelry or at my old knitting blog- And She Knits... guess I should update it a bit!


I took the boys to see Where the Wild Things Are this past weekend and posted my thoughts about it at Real Moms Guide. See below for all of my most recent articles there if you would like to check them out.



Also, the winner of the necklace from Uganda in support of Lovelyn is: Kalee

  1. When I saw the first picture, I wondered if that was the pattern you had used - it's saved in my list on Ravelry for my daughter! It looks great. I think it'll be my next project...after I finish the three I already have going!

  8. I heard that the movie isn't really for children. You sure wouldn't know by the looks of the trailer and how they market it. I'm sure a lot of parents have taken their kids to see the movie and walked away feeling no-so-good about it.

  10. Beautiful. I only hope that some day I can move past blankets and scarfs and knit something like this! :)

  11. Purple has been my favorite color since I was a wee babe (it was the color of that purse I had with the ID card that I wrote my name as "Stephanie Jones"). Even though black and green are a close second, I still swoon over purple.

    Plus, purple is a huge fall trend, so she's super hip (as usual). :)

  13. Oh my god. The cute HURTs. The kick-ass knit, and then her sweet hair...

  14. I love how this dress turned out! The yellow one is sweet, and little vintage-y, and then this one is a little more hip and modern. Ivy's such a fashionista!

    I was a bit worried that the movie might be a bit darker than the previews showed. I definitely want to see it (when I was 5 or 6 I was in a thing at school that was like interpretive dance of the book!), but thanks for the heads up about how it might be too much for a small child.

    And wow, I won? I don't even know what to say. Thank you so much. I'm excited to wear it as a reminder of the things God calls us to do.

  20. Thank you! Funny - I just signed up to Ravelry last week! I can't wait to start this. I have so many projects either going, or in the planning of. I just finished making my husband a hat. His only hat until we got married was a yellow striped hat with a pom pom that he found on a bus about 10 years ago (eewww!). He wouldn't part with it because of the pom pom. I was like, Honey, I'll make you one with a pom pom. He asked for a pom pom bigger than his head (Riightt...) I compromised and put 5 on the ends of various length I-cords and attached them to the center. He's happy, and the yellow hat went to hat heaven, so I'm happy. :)

  29. I wish I could knit!

    The thing about mom-made clothes is they are automatically heirlooms. Someday, Ivy's little girl may be wearing that same dress.

    So sweet.
