The bodice was very quick, k2p2 ribbing all around. The sleeves went well too, once I had memorized the lace pattern.
The skirt isn’t as slow as I’d worried it might be, but it’s still a complex pattern. 20 stitch cable panels with a 16 row repeat interspersed with lace panels expanding from 3 to 33 stitches, and an 8 row repeat (the same lace pattern as the sleeves, fortunately). So far I’ve finished a little more than 8 inches – the skirt should be 18″ total, but I’ll stop when I run out of time or yarn and just edge it there.
The yarn I’m using (Wendy Aran) comes in a one pound center pull ball… No luck finding a yarn sleeve for that, so I’ve improvised one with a gallon sized storage bag. Seems to work fine….
With any luck, I’ll finish it in time for her birthday and she won’t outgrow it before the next one.
