More knitted items

The dress is made with 300 grams King Cole Merino. I have purchased the Aran colour and kettle dyed it in my own chosen colourway. It is knitted top-down, following my own pattern. After the increases for the skirt I finished the sleeves and neck first. Then I knitted the skirt until there was only 1 metre of yarn left. The dress fits perfectly well and it will fit another season. Doortje loves to wear it, it is soft and warm.

And I have made another pair of longies. These were made with a regular Merino, kettle dyed in 'Dusty Rose'. They are fitting tight and were a excellent guinea-pig to try cabling for a long, almost forgotten, time. I like how they turned out.
