Eva’s Christmas Dress – First Progress Report

In keeping with my goal of finishing three Christmas outfits for the kids this year, I’ve been diligently working on Eva’s Christmas dress. After much debate (and a false start with another poorly written pattern), I settled on this pattern. Much like Kirsi’s dress, this one has a huge skirt, too, which is taking forever to knit. It’s nice, mindless knitting, though. 🙂

I’m using Malabrigo Sock in “Ivy” and size 6 needles. (The neck and button bands were done with size 4 needles.) I hope I have some yarn left over once the dress is done to make Kirsi a hat like Eva’s. I love matchy-matchy!

I have no idea how long this thing will take to finish, but I can tell you that I’m very much looking forward to working with worsted weight again. 😀

Eva’s Winter Hat

I completed the finishing touches on Eva’s Winter Hat this morning!

I managed to make that pom pom with two toddlers climbing on me.  Huzzah!

Eva seems to like her new hat.  She took it from my immediately and started wearing it.  She’s kind of obsessed with the pom pom.

I used the same yarn as I did for Kirsi’s Christmas Dress (Malabrigo Sock in “Boticelli”) and 3.25mm needles.  I modified the pattern a bit since Eva is exiting toddlerhood, and I wanted to make sure the hat was big enough.  I guess I succeeded because it’s got just the right amount of slouch.

I think it would be super cute to make Kirsi a matching hat with the leftover yarn from Eva’s Christmas dress (whenever I finish it).  Do I have the time and the will to make another?
