Well, I joined this KAL a while ago and haven't posted because I've been too lazy to take pictures! I am making the six-month size for a friend's newborn - she was premature so she won't be wearing it for a while. I'm using the Cotton-Ease in lilac - very pretty! I'm not thrilled with the yarn - there were three knots in the first skein, so I have more ends to weave in than I should. I can see where it would be a bit heavy in a larger size. I'd like to try this pattern in Knitpicks' new cotton blend called Shine.
Also, using 36" needles was completely impossible - I wonder if that is a typo? The bodice for the 6 month size is 17" around - I started the dress on 16" circulars and changed to a 32" at the increase row. I'd rather cram a bunch of stitches onto a smaller needle than have them stretched out on a larger one. This would have been a perfect project for my new Denise interchangeable needles, but I got gauge on 3s and the Denise needles only go down to 5. I'm using Addi Turbos, which are great with cotton yarn.
Here's a picture from a few days ago - I'm about halfway through the skirt now. You can see that my top edge is curling a lot - how have people solved this? Blocking?
