I had a lot of fun this last week shooting pictures of my kiddos for our Christmas cards. It gave me a great opportunity to get some shots of them in a couple of things fresh off the needles!
Here is my littlest in her Zebra Stripe dress (rav link)! I love love love it so very much! It was a lot of work on size 0s, 1s, and 2s. The only thing I would have changed is I would have knit the lace border on 1s before starting the colorwork. The pattern doesn't say to change needles for the lace or the main body, but I did end up doing it for the main body and I'm glad I did. I actually went back and took out the lace at the bottom and reknit it with the smaller size needles because it refused to stop curling. However, I do see myself knitting more dresses like this. It it really awesome and works great for layering with a long sleeve onesie and tights. I think it will make a great party dress for the holiday season and I look forward to my little one wearing it lots!
Next, for my #1 son I made him a holiday elf hat (rav link). It's made from some handspun yarn I had leftover from when I used to spin and knit my mom wild socks for Christmas. I kinda made up the pattern with some assistance from Itty Bitty Hats. I think it might need a pom-pom, what do you think? I might write up the pattern if there is enough interest!
