Baby girl's dress...

Just been looking through my photo's to show some of my knitting. This has probably been my biggest project yet, and one of the more special ones cos it was for my baby girl. It is a Zoe Mellor pattern, a little dress made from Jaeger 4 ply cotton. Behind daughters hand is a pink flower. It took me forever, but is pretty.
That is, till I did my "I'm lazy and will wash my handknit in the machine" trick and now it is a bit out of shape.
My new motto is 'if it's hand made then it has to be handwashed'..........
Tonight I have been working on a Debbie Bliss baby cardigan. I need a circular needle, but the shop I bought from took the money from my visa then informed me that they have to order the needle for themselves. It's been about 3 weeks now, and nothing. I am most unhappy about it. I contribute to a forum but can't complain on it, because it is connected to the shop, so here is my moan here, I'm entitled to a little stomp of my feet right??

Anyway, I am doing the yoke on a straight needle instead so I hope it works, I think it will be fine up until my stitch count decreases by a lot. So I will go slow. I am knitting for a newborn though so I can't go too slow or one of two things will happen.

  1. the baby will grow out of it before it is finished
  2. it will be summer and too hot for the baby to ever wear it.

So hurry up shop, send me my Addi Turbo!!!!

Bye for today

That is a cute dress and even cuter model!

As for your Addi needle, they are notoriously slow in sending them to shops. I think they only make them once in blue moon. You may be in for a long wait. Try emailing the shop to find out if they have an estimated delivery date.

You may be better cancelling the order and using an online shop that tell you straight away what they have in stock. I don't order from shops now which don't tell you exactly what is in stock now. Get Knitted, woollyworkshop, and ebay are great as they always have an up to date website. in your country are great too!
