just peachy…

Peachy Sweet Clara dress is DONE!  I can’t wait to see a picture of Lola in this. 

Clara Dress pattern

I finished this wonderful project last Sunday and I wasn’t sure if I like the crocheted neck edge or not.  I’m going to leave it, I think.   I still need to get a button for the back at the neck.  I’ve been sick most of this week and so maybe I can get out of the house and look for the perfect button tomorrow.

Pattern: Clara by Karin Vestergaard Mathiesen
Needles: size 3 circ and dpn
Yarn: Sirdar Juicy DK – used 4 skeins had very little left, I also only knit 6 seed stitch rounds around each sleeve instead of 10 rounds, because I was afraid I wouldn’t have enough yarn. 4 skeins is 412 yards.
Size: smallest of the 2
A few more pictures up close…
It difficult to show the true color, so just trust me… it’s YUMMY!

sleeves are 6 rows of seed stitch and then CO in seed stitch

OK, one more picture…

I’m already thinking about the next project… pictures will follow!
