I love this pattern but didn’t particularly enjoy knitting this dress. I had bought some acrylic yarn in Aldi to make some baby clothes as gifts. There were two (very good) reasons for this. One, I wanted to give gifts that could be put in the washing machine. And two, I didn’t want to spend a large amount of money on yarn for a gift that may not get used very much.
These reasons are still valid, but I won’t make that mistake again. The resulting dress is super cute – and practical but I didn’t enjoy the knitting process. You live and learn. I still have more of this yarn left but I think I’ll make some little cardigans with it, they’ll be quicker, which means less time with the yarn. In my head at least.
