Occasionally I find and knit up a pattern that truly satisfies me as a knitter.
Everything about it is enjoyable and comes together in a beautiful way.
This is exactly how I feel about my most recent knit. The Clara pattern.
Not only was this pattern fun and interesting to knit, but the dress is too adorable for words. It's what I would call.. painfully adorable. The details kill me. I just love it so much.
ALSO... I was able to knit this entire dress with one skein of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light that was languishing in my yarn stash. It is not often that you can knit an entire garment from only one skein!
I knit this little dress as a present to take to a baby shower this coming weekend for my friend (and Botanical Knits model) Courtney who is expecting her first baby this January.
I hope she loves this sweet little dress as much as I do! :)
