Taa daa

Not wanting to be boring but what is the weather like where you are?  Here in Tasmania, it's freakin' cold!  I've been sick for the past five weeks with a bad headcold and have been struggling alone with day to day stuff, not much time for fun crafty stuff.
I did manage to finish a project on my needles, it's a dress for Laney made from scraps from this. It's not exactly the choice colours I would have chosen if I was purchasing the yarn specifically for the dress but hey, I was trying to use what I have!
I'm seriously hoping that Laney won't look like a clown when she wears it... what do you think? Is it too clownish?
It's got a button on the back, that is the only difference between the front and back.

I still have some scraps of yarn left over but I think it's time to dump them in a basket in the cupboard & knit something in one colour!

Pattern details on Ravelry here...

Ok, cup of tea time for me now.


  1. Oh it is cute and what a great way to use up scraps. I hope you feel better soon, so many yucky viruses going around.

  2. I love the dress, not clowny at all. Weather is rainy and cold too here in Chile, everybody has a cold or just recovered from one. Kids' noses are permanently runny or stuffed. This year we kept summer saving time, so sunrise is at 9 am! Crazy dark in the early morning.

    1. 9am daylight - eek! It gets daylight just before 7am here, so we can start our day without the lights on.

  3. It is awesome! I love it so much! Did it take 5 weeks to make? It is beautiful! I hope you get better soon after so long should you maybe go to the Dr? Sinus infection (antibiotics)! The weather here is aweful raining for two weeks, so we came home from hot beautiful Beach on Sunday to yuck. Taking care of chickens in this mess is gross, but we will survive. Glad I live on a hill, flooding in lower areas.

    1. It took forever.. I think!
      I had a chest infection but am all ok now that it is spring!
