Coming Soon - Lemon Lime Summer Collection

I finally did it!!!  This is the first pattern that I have been able to keep under wraps until it was ready for release :)  Usually, I get so excited about my new designs that I can't wait to share photos with everyone and considering my lack of photo talent - it's not really a good thing. 

My Lemon Lime Summer Collection will be released on Monday July 29th.  I am doing something different this time and releasing all sizes and all variations in the same pattern.  It is something that has been asked for and because it really is a simple pattern with just a few variations, it was easy to do.  This collection includes a Skirt, Dress and Summer Top with instructions for sizes Newborn - Child's 12.  I hesitate slightly on the dresses for the older kids because they can become heavy from the amount of yarn required, but I have it as an option.

I have really liked working with Cotton this summer.  It is a first for me.  Cotton just seems harder to work with - it doesn't slip through each stitch as easily as acrylic does and I wasn't sure I would continue using it after my first projects.  I have used several different brands and they each have good and not so good traits to them.  Red Heart's Creme de la Creme is what I have started using more of.  It is on the thinner side of cotton, but it's not so hard on my shoulders when using it - AND,  Here are the results...

Something else I haven't usually done with a pattern release is give a copy away. Well,  we are going to change that with this release :)  From now until Sunday night, you can enter my Giveaway for a chance to win your copy.  I will draw 1 winner for every 10 fans who enter. 
Good luck!
