Intro

Hello everyone!

My name is Debra and I just joined the knit-a-long. I hope I am not too late. Has everyone finished the dress already. Im a relatively new knitter but feel ready to take on the pattern. I've stared at it for about a month now, its sort of hard to take the leap forward and pick up the needles.

I've decided (I think) to use http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/yarn_display.aspx?itemid=5420122 for a size 6 dress. I dont know how to adjust for differnt yarns/needle sizes. Has anyone used this yarn who can guide me a bit. Any insight you can offer would be fabulous!

Thanks so much!

I'm still working on my dress, also a size 6. The skirt is taking me forever. Your yarn choice looks very nice. What color were you going to use? Are you going to use beads or not?

Thanks Trish! My little recipient requested "cherry". She's actually a size 4 but, not only am I planning for the time it will take me to get it done, but for shrinkage. I just know it'll end up in the dryer some how. All that time making it and it could be doll clothes in an instant ;-)

I just need help with figuring out all the specifics to use with the yarn. Then I will get going.

What color is yours?

I have just finished knitting a tank top in Shine and I've heard that the cherry color is more coral than fire-engine red... just FYI. I've also made 2 crumpets dresses but it's been so long I feel like I barely remember the pattern! Best of luck... it will be gorgeous in that soft yarn.

I'm knitting it size 4 and it's taking me ages, too. However, lately I've ony had about two hours/ week to knit!

Sorry I only check in here when I am knitting the dress, which shows how often I pick it up. I am using Lily Elite cotton in Rose with faux pearl beads. We will actually be taking a trip over the weekend with 2 6 hour car rides so I am hoping that the baby cooperates and I can get a lot of knitting done.
