Ripples Sundress

My newest treasure for Miss E.
 was hoping for a Chevron look,
but ended up with more or a smooth ripple
instead of the sharp ripple I had imagined.


But, I like how it ended up.
The ripples look more like waves.

And the straps are just precious.




I also like how the straps button inside the dress.

These straps are long enough that when the "dress" is outgrown,
it can be worn at a top.



I used Patons Grace.
One skein of the following:
Blush, Lotus, Orchid and White
to make a Size 2T.


      

This pattern is available in my Ravelry Store for $3.99. 
Just click on the link below.
All proceeds from this pattern will be donated 
to a no-kill animal shelter in Western New York 
or one my home state of Indiana.

They're Here

Indy found some boxes on the front porch today.
I am REAL excited to see all of them.

The top box contains the yarn I won
for placing in the Vanna's Choice Contest this spring.

The bottom two are from DirecTv.
It has only taken me three calls to them
to send these boxes to me.
We upgraded to HD 
and have 4 receivers we needed to return.
Once one calls them,
they say they will be sending boxes out to you.
Well, I think it took me one extra call
to get an American on the phone
who actually understood what I wanted.

Since the bottom two boxes are empty,
I won't show you what is inside them.

Here is what was inside the Lion Brand box.

It included the following 21 yarns.
Tapestry: Brazil, Scandinavian and Peru
BonBons: Happy and Peaceful
Glamor: Diamond and Lapiz
Worsted AWeight Vanna's Choice:
2 Navy, and one each of the following:
Aqua, Colonial Blue, Dusty Blue,
Silver Blue, Sapphire, Linen, Beige,
Mustard, Terracotta, Honey, Rust
and Raspberry.

Now, to find patterns :)

Hearts for Miss E


Have I shown you this yet?

I designed this
for Miss E's 2nd Birthday.


No pattern yet, 
and I can't remember if I even started writing it.

If I did,
I will post it later.

I don't know how well you can see it
but her Momma dressed her in it
for our Family Picture
when we were home in June.

E's Summer Sun Dress


I designed this for my 2 year old great niece, Miss E.

When we were home for vacation
her Mom told me that,
when E has outgrown the dresses I have made,
she puts some leggings or tights under them
and uses them for tops.

This gave me an idea . . . 
why not make the straps longer
than I think I need
so the outgrown dress
could be worn as a top?

So this dress has long straps,
that button inside the back of the bodice.
