Early Girl Dress

I FINALLY finished Michaela's Early Girl Dress. The pattern is from the Summer 2011 issue of Interweave Crochet. It's a great pattern, written by Lisa Naskrent (the link is to her Ravelry designer page). It took me forever to complete, only because I kept getting distracted by life and just left it sitting for weeks at a time. At least it's finally done. Here are a couple of pics:

I was very happy with how it turned out and Michaela LOVES it! Of course, it's purple so I expected nothing less. I used Berroco Comfort DK and I loved the yarn. For locals, I got it at Village Stitches in Bloomington. It is fairly accesible yarn at most yarn shops and online however. The link is for Village Stitches ravelry shop page however, you can also find them on Facebook here.

I have now moved onto an Autumn table runner, knitted. It is progressing nicely, and MUCH more quickly than the dress did. What about you? What have you been working on? If you're on Ravelry, drop me a line and let me know. I'd love to "friend" you and see projects you have or are working on! Happy stitching folks enjoy the holiday season!
