It's been a click clack Christmas

OND 2010

I pretty much spent the Christmas break knitting.
A nearly 5 hour car drive to and from my in-law's house
and a long weekend of extended family running riot
let me sit back and knit, knit, knit.


OND 2010

Pattern: Ava tunic- Fletcher Cottage Collection
Yarn: BWM classic 8 ply yarn

OND 2010

It took me a while to get a grip on the pattern
-hence a few mistakes visible in the top of the dress if you look-
but it prgressed nicely once I got myself sorted.

OND 2010

The pattern runs size 18mo, 3 and 6 years
so I made my nearly 4 year old the size 6.
Lots of room = lots of wear.

I came here from a comment you left at the Handmaiden.

I love the dress. I did some knitting when we had our Christmas trip home to Adelaide but not nearly as much as you got done.
