kid stuff


i finally stopped whining over the demise of my spring showers scarf and got down to real business: finding something new to knit for summer. leafing through the spring 2008 IK, i decided my fave design of the issue is this adorable polo dress. tweak the sizing, maybe tweak the stripes to be very muted or make it in a single color with contrasting trim. either way, i think it would be totally fun for summer. who says kids get to have all the fun?

My favorite sweater is a child's pattern that I adapted to adult. The dress would be darling for any age.

That'd definitely work. Single color with contrasting trim sounds great. Have you chosen the yarn yet?

not yet...the pattern calls for louet euroflax i think...which supposedly softens and drapes beautifully after blocking. i have a ball of it in my stash that i should break out and try swatching with.

i love that you're doing this...I always look at kid's dresses and wish they were in my size.
