My current work in progress:

Seaforth designed by Alice Starmore, knit in British Breeds 5-ply Guernsey Wool on US 3 needles.



On Thursday I finished the sweet little baby dress I showed a couple of blog posts ago.


Isn’t it sweet? The pattern is the Muti Dress, from Taiga Hilliard Designs. The yarn is KnitPicks Comfy Fingering in the “Flamingo” colorway. I used about 1.75 skeins.

A close-up of the little bodice:


And the back — it is fastened with a single button at the back neck.


The lace pattern around the hem mirrors the pattern on the bodice.


This was a very fun project. The pattern was well-written and easy to follow. It is written in a wide range of sizes, too. I can file it away for future reference, should I have the need to knit a gift for another baby girl.

Have a great Sunday, everyone. Here is our plan for the day:




  1. The Muti dress is adorable,.That shade of pink is so perfectly suited to the lace pattern. I love knitting small things. It’s a thrill to finish something so quickly. Thank you for sharing Muti and for the reminder that Knit Picks has fabulous yarn.

  2. The dress is just precious! Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. That dress is seriously sweet. You can bet that the recipient will pass it down as an heirloom.

    Loki seems to have an endless supply of tummy fluff.

    I’m knitting Rio, another of her design, and added a lacey tr evof lice to the bodice instead of seed stitch. I think the pattern is addictive- a potato chip knit!

    Perhps Loki has crashed because of today’s Washington Redskins football debacle?

  6. I love that little dress. I have worked with the Comfy fingering too and it is a nice yarn. Great choice for a baby garment. Loki has the right idea for Sun.;O))

  7. Completely charming dress and a gift to be treasured!
