Thursday's Ta-Dah

A little ta-dah today. I actually finished this a couple of days ago but only put the buttons on today. I am calling this one the Chelsea after my niece.......

 I used pure wool for the pink part and acrylic for the main. Only because it was the only colour I could find in my stash that would match the pink.

It was purely one of those over sights. I thought I had 6 balls of the pink and I only had 2. So rather than start over I just used what I had.

I had originally started with a pattern but after the 3rd row the pattern did not make sense so in my usual fashion I just changed it and made it up as I went along.

All in all, it did not turn out too bad I guess.

I would like to make this in either cotton or pure wool as the main part this time was in acrylic and I can't say that I am entirely satisfied with the result. It looks better in real life than in pictures but still you all know me by now. A bit fussy about my yarn and self critical about my work. LOL

I am pretty sure my niece will love it. :-)

  1. Its beautiful - and love the colours. It looks a bit like a fairy shape.

  2. It's adorable, I bet she will look perfect in it. I know what you mean about acrylics, I have a ton of them to use up but really only want to use them for very large projects, like blankets.

  3. The dress is adorable, Karisma, and I'm sure your niece will love it :)

  4. Wowzers! This is great! You are clever and talented darlin'!
