I am so excited. I finished what I think is my favorite pattern/item ever (and that's saying a lot since I've been knitting obsessively for about 5 years).
here is my lovely daughter equally excited.

and with her brother:


thanks to Gudrun and Knitty for this amazing pattern. By the way, I used the Hempathy (the suggested yarn) and knitted the size 6. I made it longer, though, following the chart for size 10.

Amazing!!  I just started one of these last night.  I'm sizing it down for my 3-year-old daughter.  How many skeins did your's take?

Sometimes it's knit and sometimes it's crochet.

Uh-oh - my 8 year old was looking over my shoulder and saw the skirt!  You did a fabulous job - it turned out quite nice - wish me luck as it seems that is also a task for me now!

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
