A New Knit Dress Ensemble for the Little Darlings

Phew, it feels GREAT to have gotten  something completed today and the Little Darlings get something new…yes, again.  I finished something new for Millie mid week, but felt that I really needed another wig so that the ensemble looked its best for the photo shoot.  So, poor Millie is in limbo right now waiting for the mail service to do its work.

I spent a day and a half this past week working on a new styled dress for Talyssa.  I am so HAPPY with how the dress looks on her and will finish up the other pieces of her ensemble this coming week so she can model it for you.

And, here is Gina, my Little Darling, modeling “Summer Blooms” which I put the finishing touches on this morning.  I actually started knitting this sweater dress two weeks ago.  These little babies take awhile to knit (remember they have over 10,000 stitches in each dress), so I would pick it up between projects.  If I didn’t work on it this way, I would really feel like nothing was getting completed.  If you’d like to read about my first fine gauge sweater dress that I made for the Little Darlings you can find it HERE and HERE is the second one that I made for them.  I added a crocheted cap to this one; it seemed like the perfect summery touch for this ensemble.

    Cindy, your embroidery is so gorgeous, so fresh-looking every time. I drool over your buillion roses (which I’m getting pretty good at). Precious little ensemble. Thank you for your beautiful work and your sense of fairness with the models; each one getting her fair share of your time and talent. You must be a speed-knitter.

      Hi Marina,
      I would love to see your embroidery. I always love to look at embroidery. No, I’m not a speed knitter. As often as I have tried, I cannot grasp continental style which is a faster method. You would think it would be easy since I hold the thread in my left hand when I crochet, but no, my fingers will not cooperate for knitting.
      Gina has started getting more modeling time than the others lately; I think there is some jealousy developing amongst my girls. LOL
