Two finished objects. The Sarena shrug came from Berroco's free pattern site. I made it out of some discontinued Cara Mia some months back.  It was really good mindless knitting since there is almost no shaping and all knitting and purling. I like the shape of it... the back has the length of a normal jacket but the front opens up nicely to just cover your shoulders. I made the larger size though and it turned out too large and it slips off my shoulders all the time so I just wear it at home. I wouldn't mind making another one but definitely in a smaller size.

Apologies for the photo... the detail really looks better than on here.  The back has a very pleasing shape to it.

In any case, even though it's too large it was a great study in how to make a simple shrug.  I think you could take just about any stitch pattern, measure how wide you want the back and the width from sleeve to sleeve and then sew it all together in a big cocoon.

This was my own design, a baby sweater knit completely in the round that took around three or four hours.  I think if I made it a little longer it would be an adorable dress so I'll have to try that next time.  This is a size 2T and was made out of fantasy naturale cotton and odds and ends of worsted scraps. With the little stripes across her tummy she looks like a Jellyroll in it. My baby is one year old but the 2T size is just a little big and almost her size, she is a fat little breastfed toddler.

I like the fringing on your little girl's dress too,
and I love the colours you've used.
She is such a sweetie!
