Still loving the Crochet
I finished the little dress, which turned out to be adorable. I donated to the Girl Guides fundraiser silent auction. I know the lady that bought it, so I will be secretly watching her child this summer to see if she wears it. This was such a cute design, and the designer couldn't be sweeter. She contacted me on Ravelry to let me know that she liked my rendition of her design. I did use a heavier gauged yarn than recommended and consequently ended up with a size to fit a 2 year old even though I crocheted the smallest size.
And here is my progress on the rhubard scarf. What a great pairing of stitch pattern and yarn! I'm loving the result, though I'm getting a little tired of scarves. I just finished knitting Summit from the most recent issue of Knitty. I modified mine to make a more narrow version because I didn't have enough of the yarn to make a full sized version. I used Knitpick's Stroll kettle dyed in the auburn colourway. Overall, I'm happy with this as it resulted in a nice spring scarf. Blocking was tricky though!
