In trying to find the best mesh yarn to use for the Princess Britt dresses, I ordered some "Fancy Yarn" from Ebay. I loved the colors, but was slightly disappointed with the width of it when it came. It is about 1/2 the width of the Red Heart Sashay yarn. I decided to try it on a Newborn size dress first since it was smaller. Here is the result :)
Miss Priss Pattern and just made anlkets. The baby is having pictures done today and it is around 90*, so I didn't want the whole legging for right now. Loved that idea and will be doning more :)
I did learn a lesson though....DO NOT start a pattern really late at night when extremely tired!!! I started a dress and was not paying attention to the actual pattern since I have most of it memorized and was more than 1/2 way finished before I realized I had grabbed the Toddler pattern and was working the 18mo size instead of the Infant pattern Newborn size. Sooooo, I ended up with 2 dresses.
This is the 18month complete.
Since this yarn was smaller, I had to do shorter stitches for the skirt on this one so it would still look full. It made it slightly heavier, but not a huge difference. I have 2 more skeins to use that are a deep pink and brown verigated that is REALLY pretty. Those will have to wait until I finish the 2 other dresses that have already been started.
I hope everyone has started a wonderful weekend. My heart goes out to those who are effected by the fires across the country! Stay safe and keep cool.Kate
