FO #97

A little swingy dress thing, it's quite odd:



A bit of a disappointment...it looks cute on the trampoline, but not so cute when actually on the kid. She loooves it though, so that's what's important, right?

The boring stuff:
Swingy-dressy-thing, made up as I went along.
Knit in K1C2 Wick -- 2 skeins Columbine, 1 skein Plum, on US3 (lace) and US8 needles.
Pattern notes: I knit the lace part first, on really small needles so it wouldn't be extremely holey. Then I picked up stitches to knit the skirt and the body.

I think it's adorable! Why does it look funny on? Maybe a little tweaking could fix it? It's so cute, I can't believe you just made it up -- I wish I could do that!

I love it...are you READING MY MIND?! I am about to knit a top for my niece and couldn't find the pattern that I want, and i was about to do something very similar. Well, I am going to knit either a cable or lace insert and then pu sts fro top and bottom...great minds, my friend, great minds!
