Rose can finally wear it...!

Agesss ago I knitted this sweet little dress for Rose. I've just realised it was almost a whole year ago that I finished it... time really does fly! Today I saw it hanging in her wardrobe and thought I would see if it fits her yet and it was a perfect fit! She seems to be shooting upwards at the moment so I'll have to put her in it as much as possible while it still fits her!


The bottom could really do with a good blocking really but I'm just too lazy. Plus I just don't know where I can do it and keep the pins out of Rose's reach! If only we had a spare room that I could shut the door to.


It was hard to take a nice photo of her wearing it as she was glued to a game on the ipad! We have been at a toddler group all morning and had a friend and her little girl round for lunch, so she was enjoying a treat... plus it keeps her Very quiet while I'm sorting out Arthur! 


I received some lovely new yarn in the post this morning. :-) I swapped it with someone on Instagram, she wanted some sock yarn that I wasn't totally keen on and in return I got this. I need to search on Ravelry for a couple of projects to go with these 2 balls.. I especially love the colour of the 4ply Rowan Siena, it has a beautiful sheen to it.
  

Well, time to crack on with the dinner for this evening... shepherds pie tonight. I need to try out some new recipes really, I end up cooking the same 8 or so meals in rotation. It has to be something fairly simple with these two keeping me busy at the moment though!

Love Ashley xxx

  2. Rose is so beautiful. Her hair remind me of my granddaughter's. She is now 6 and has beautiful hair. It is long, dark and with just the right amount of curl. Kinda looks like a wig it looks so good. Love the little dress. I bet you are busy.

  3. Great to see you back in blogland, I love your knits in the previous post. Those Alice mitts are gorgeous and Arthur's cardigan will look fantastic when done. Rose's dress is wonderful, she looks so cute in it. Looking forward to seeing what you make with the Rowan, it's a lovely yarn to knit with. I can't believe my little one is 12 weeks already, where is the time going !

  4. That dress is adorable. I have one similar on my to make list for Iona. Although mine is a lot simpler on account of still not being much past stocking stitch in my knitting skills hehe.
    Rose is looking very angelic with that ipad :)

  13. Hi! I'm loving your blog :-) Rose looks so adorable and that dress is just lovely. Well done! And oh I am so with you on wanting a spare room. In our little house we all love various types of crafty stuff and trying to keep it contained and tidy is a constant battle!
