Take a peek at the little dress...


I finished the little dress for my niece, and it really came out cute. This is a class I took to learn intarsia, and it wasn't too bad. I wouldn't want to put intarsia on everything, but at least I know I can do it - hurrah! The edges are all embellished with that dastardly crochet. It looks okay, but I only know enough about crochet to fake it, and I had to fake double crochet and scallops this time. I really liked the yarn, Inspiration by Cascade, and I may even make another little dress like this in red with scotty dogs in the band portion, but I will have to wait and see. I have other projects to tend to first.

Here is an attempt at a close up of the tulips in the intarsia band.

Sassy pants likes to admire herself online, and here is Natty doing just that...

That little dress came out beautifully!!! I've used fixation for socks and it does take a bit of getting used to, but it is nice.

Must talk to The Meezer...she's completely disinterested in the computer (except the keyboard)!

That dress is the cutest!! It makes me want to really buckle down and learn intarsia. I can't wait to see pics of the dress on the recipient.
