Tah-Dah!

I feel like a genius every time I turn the heel on a sock, but today, I feel especially brilliant because I finished Elizabeth's little dress. It is, by far, the most complicated thing I have ever knit. It has multiple yarn changes, different types of stitches, and pleats. I had to Kitchener the shoulders together, and then un-Kitchener them because I attached the wrong ones. Whoops. I called my mom cursing about that one.

I do still need to crochet the trim around the neck and sleeves and then block the whole thing, but I couldn't wait that long to take pictures of my sweet girl in her new sweet dress.

Oh my gosh, I'm so impressed. And she's adorable in that adorable dress. In fact, it all looks so great that I'm not even going to ask how hot it is there. Elizabeth does not look bothered by the heat.

How beautiful, Elizabeth and the dress. I can still remember the day my mum told me I had to sort out my own mistakes, lol
