Knitting in a Round

Hi All! Almost the end of another week.  In fact, it's the end of the fourth last  week of school around here!  The kids are excited for summer - but so are Mom and Dad.  Handsome Hubby and I are both teachers and we can't wait to have all of our assessments, exams and report cards DONE and out of the way!  Just THREE MORE WEEKS!

Did you watch any of the Jubilee celebrations?  I'll admit, I didn't watch all that much, but I did enjoy the flotilla on Sunday morning.  To mark this quintessentially British event, I rose early that morning and made scones and tea for the family for breakfast.  I think these biscuits were the best I had EVER made - light and flaky and perfect with my freshly made strawberry jam!

I also took some time on Sunday to finish up my latest knitting project.  
I had seen this lovely knitted dress on Jenni's blog and knew instantly that I wanted to give it a spin.  I purchased and downloaded the pattern from here and got started right away.  
I used some of my favourite Cath Kidston inspired colours and began my journey around and around on my circular needles.  

Here are all of my sweater's pretty little parts:

This little thing was a joy to knit.  The colours made my heart sing, the overall finished dress is absolutely adorable!

Now which of pregnant friends will receive this as a gift??   Hmm....Maybe I'll whip up a few more so that no one gets their heart-broken......  : )

In closing, I want to send out a big THANKS to Shannon over at Sew Sweet Cottage for awarding me with the  Sunshine Blogger Award.  

Have a wonderful day everyone!


  1. I love that happy colored little dress! Now I want to knit something cheery and scalloped!

  2. Wow, what an ambitious morning! Good for you!

    The knitted dress is adorable! The scallops are so cute! My Mom is an avid knitter and has tried to teach me many times but I'm a lefty and I've heard that makes it tricky to learn from a right-handed knitter.

    I know the lucky recipient will be thrilled :)

    Let the countdown begin!
