Pattern: Hannah’s Sweet Delight
Yarn: Madelinetosh Longrider DK
Color: Neon Peach
Even though I had finished the knitting on the doll dress for Addie, and blocked it before I left home, I had not sewn on the buttons. I figured I’d wait and see if it fit before wasting three buttons. When I got to MO, I showed the dress to Addie and we tried it on the doll and it was a perfect fit. She wanted the buttons sewn on NOW but I told her I would do it the next day while she was at school . . and I did.
These were the buttons I had with me. Addie liked them all. Since I only needed three and since two cards had six, and that would leave me with three extras, I used the buttons that would make the most of the buttons I had.
Now, the dress is totally and completely finished.
The pattern really is a perfect fit. Today is Addie’s last day to bring a show & tell project to share with her class and she brought her doll with the new dress. That made me feel really good – she likes it! She also told me: “Granny, I want you to knit a whole bunch more clothes for her!” That I can do! We sat down together and looked at lots of patterns and she loved every one of them so this will be easy and I find it super fun to knit these clothes. They’re not so small as to be too tedious (like Barbie clothes) and they’re small enough to go really quickly.
