Christmas Project

Well that's me done for another year at work. Yippee. I've had plans for a knitting project on the back burner for a while, so the holidays seem like the perfect time to get started.

Ooh what's this? Is it a lovely parcel for me? Yes I've been ordering wool from Pickles again.

It's going to be the Golden Child Dress - a Pickles pattern for my niece Emma (who else?!). I got my sister Vicky to help choose as there are lots of yarn kits available in various colours. This is the one she picked...
...hello Missy!

The body of the dress is Pickle Pure Alpaca. So lovely and snuggly soft.

The yoke of the dress has some lovely detailing, highlighted by the use of Pickles Bling! I know so fab!

I feel festive just looking at it.
