A Knitted Dress for Daisy


My mother knitted Daisy this lovely jumper-style dress. Note the cables, and the beautiful sheen of the yarn (is it wool-silk? I can't remember, but I know it's not at all itchy).


Delicious bobbles serve as faux buttons at the shoulder. And how about that delicious curl?

i'd love a dress like that myself...trouble is when you're nearly 6 feet tall that's a LOT of knitting!
