And so my plan to put aside the knitting in favor of sewing didn't go so well. I find late at night, when the baby is sleeping, I just want the peace and calm of knitting. It took me a while to decide on a project but when I saw this dress I knew April needed one.
I followed Waldorf Mama's notes (my notes are here) and combined the Bloom dress with the Rainbow dress. I used a Mirasol yarn that just made me think of summer at the beach. The colorway was perfect. I chose the fan and feather hem because I thought it looked like waves which was a lovely finishing touch for this dress.
You also have to love knitting projects that use all the yarn. I bought 3 skeins of Mirasol Hacho and used all but one yard of the yarn!
