I learned to knit when I was about 7 years old (I remember holding one needle between my knees so I could use both hands to manage the yarn and other needle!), but I've never really knit much other than squares and rectangles.  I wanted to knit something more, but I was scared to try to follow a pattern...so I started with this free Summerlin pattern (small, and not too intimidating).

And here, for your viewing pleasure, is my first knit article of clothing!



The bodice is knit of pretty yellow Sugar'n'Cream and the skirt is linen I reconned from a woman's shirt I got at the thrift store for $2.



It turned out so well, that I started on a simple toddler dress. It's about halfway done already! (I'm a slow knitter).

The pattern was surprisingly easy and I'll definitely make another one...just as soon as I lay my hands on some more cotton yarn.  Roll Eyes
