Ta-dahhh! Rose's knitted dress.

I finished knitting Rose's dress whilst we were in Wales (lots of photo's to follow!) and I've had it on the side ready to take some photo's of since we got back, I only just got my act together and took the photo's today though! 


It's knitted using this pattern from Ravelry and it was really quite a simple project. Sometimes it's nice when a pattern is so easy to follow because then I enjoy the whole knitting process a whole lot more. Plus I can't be dealing with counting millions of stitches when I'm trying to keep an eye on the little munchkin as well! :-)


I got a whole lot of this lace ribbon for a really great price and also the buttons while we were there too, so I was able to completely finish it off.


I'm really happy with how it's turned out. It's still a little big for Rose but will be perfect for her in the Autumn and that works out well because it's more of an Autumn/Winter dress anyway. The yarn is Debbie Bliss Fez, I got it at a bargain price when it was down to half price just after Christmas. 

I still have some left over so I'm trying to think of what I can do with it... I've got so many odd 50/100gram balls of wool that I need to use, does anyone have any idea's for some nice knitting/crochet patterns that only call for 1 or 2 balls..?


So, what do you think..?!
