Little girl knitting ...

is fun. It's like making doll clothes for a real life doll. I've got the front and back jumper skirt done . As I was looking at them I had a duh moment .... should have done this is the round since they are identical! Working on the top back now and it seems to be rolling right along.
I love the feeling of the cotton ease but we'll see how it washes before I decide to use it again. After all I know a couple little boys who could use some sweaters too.
And I started a larger 5 hr sweater last night. I hoping to get the yoke done so that I can see how it'll fit the little missy. They are stopping over tomorrow so I can get some measurments and hopefully get this finished by Sunday.

I had the same duh moment when I knit the sundress for my daughter. The next one is being knit in the round. You'll have to let me know how the cotton ease is. I'm always looking for kid friendly yarns.

Gorgeous shade of blue, and I love the green for the sweater.

Yep, did the same thing with the jumper for Baby Girl. When I did it the 2nd time, I remembered to knit it in the round. If this works out well, you can always make a bigger one in the round. and cant wait to see how that cotton ease works.....

Yep the last jumper /sundress I knit I knit flat also. I have never knit with cotton ease so I am curious also as to how well it wears. i love that shade of blue. W and N will be wanting sweaters to match their new socks.

I need to knit a sweater!! But I live in Florida where sweaters aren't appreciated and I have no little ones so it would be for me and take forever. Still, it would be fun. Your photos are gorgeous.
