We have a completed pinny



I just finished Anna's pinafore, and overall I am pretty happy with the way it came out. I love, love the seed stitch, but it is really boxy. The pattern was written for a one year old, so my initial thought was to just add about six inches to the length so she could wear it as a dress, but after starting it, I quickly changed my mind, and decided it would look just as cute worn as a top.


When ever I make something for the kids, and there are things about it I don't like, as soon as they put it on, all those things just disappear.



I think she likes it too!

Stunning Katie! Your daughter is adorable, and yes I think she likes it too! The color is beautiful and I love it as a babydoll like top too. Your knitting work is always a sight to admire!

Love it...as usual! The colour looks especially nice with her hair and complexion. I also like the quilt she is sitting on (let me guess, you made it right??)...gorgeous!

Marcia said...

Very cute! You can tell she likes it. You'll have so much fun making things for her as she grows up. Pretty soon her friends will be wanting you to make things for them too. Ü

Hi Katie. First, I love the name Anne. Love it. It was on all three lists of girls names with each pregnancy. Second, I love the top. Great idea to use it in such a way; it is very cute (the model too!). Lastly, super fast knitting. Really. Thanks for sharing.

It's adorable! So funny too because I was at my knit night last night one of the knitters brought the same knit done in purple for her granddaughter for Easter.

Great knitters think alike!
