Currently on my needles, is the Maxi Dress by Elena Nodel from her blog Knitting Adventures. This is turning out to be a surprisingly quick knit. It's knit top down, in one piece (no seaming!).
This dress is destined for my adorable neighbour, Rafi, who is turning two on June 6. Her parents are fantastic people who have been so generous to Kivi and me since our Pumpkin arrived. They are always dropping off something new for us. Last week it was a teething toy that they said was Rafi's favorite thing to gum. The week before it was homemade curry. They gifted us bibs and washcloths and on and on. Not to mention the advice and support around becoming parents. We are so lucky to have friends like them!
I'm using Mission Falls 1824 Cotton
and Estelle Cotton Cloud
I got a terrific price from Haley at Knitomatic on the Mission Falls because the line is being discontinued. I paid about $3 a ball. Not too shabby. Rafi has a dark complexion so I think the fuchsia and browns will really suit her.
Rafi is a tiny little sprout, so I really hope this dress will fit her! I can't wait for her to try it on.
