After Putting Down the Needles for a While...

I picked up a sharp one, and made this dress!
I pretty much finished it all yesterday, but I cut out some pieces a couple months ago and this morning I fiddled with the hem, and arm holes.



I love it. The fabric has a bit of stretch in it, so even though it's snug, I can breathe easily.

I'm planning another out of this:



I've knit a little, I started a stockinette sock thursday and knit it while seeing the Hartt School's production of Tommy, and Mike's school's production of Chicago. I got to the heel during chicago, but here is that I have a picture of:



And McKayla finished a hat!

Beautiful dress! I like the needles you're using for the sock, too.

Please tell McKayla that her hat is beautiful, and looks really comfy.
