Knitting a baby dress!

I have too many projects going on. Starting a new job, overbooked myself (pun intended) for the book blog, taking care of my little old westie who has cancer, drowning under bills, you know...usual stuffs. :D

But I have deadlines and things to make. Like that scarf. Or the vest for my mom (I wanted to get it done for next month, but something tells me that ain't happening). Or this stuffed trout thing that I want to make for my dad.

So what did I decide to knit? A lilac baby dress. I'm not pregnant, no. But SOMEONE is. *coughsbitesliphardpromisednottotell*

So I'm making this:

I'm knitting it in Bernat Softee Baby yarn in Soft Lilac. It's super soft and washable and a lovely light light lilac.

Of course...I had moments of

over and over again. The pattern is really simple and easy to follow long, but for whatever reason, I took one sentence to mean something else and instead of knitting in the established pattern, kept trying to reverse it. D'oh!  Don't ask. I was making dumb mistakes all night. But now it's soaring along and I'm thinking that baby items are nice and tiny and small and maybe I'll keep making those instead until the late February deadline, eh?


I got the yarn from, which was nicely discounted, but with a new job comes new yarn affordability! I think I might limit myself, however, until I finish these three or four projects first!

I am quite excited to be knitting. Quite excited for SOMEONE's baby girl to be born. And generally just happy happy lately. :D

What are you up to? What are you reading? What are you knitting? Anyone? Anyone?
