KnitNZu is having a contest – by April 29, guess what sort of critter is living on her kitchen table and you could win something from her stash.

Ta-da! The lacy tank dress, mostly dry.

Pattern: Lacy tank dress from Knitting for Babies, modified by knitting in the round to the armholes and by picking up and knitting a round on the hem, then binding off in purl (hopefully to help control the curl). If I knit this again, I will probably knit a few rounds of garter stitch on the hem to control the curl a bit better, but I didn’t have enough yarn this time. This took me 10 days to knit and finish.
Yarn: Five skeins of SWTC A-MAIZ-ing (100% corn fiber, machine wash and dry) in Imperial Purple. This yarn is a knit tube type ribbon yarn. I thought it had good stitch definition and a lot more give than cotton.

I don’t think Mayhem is too emotionally scarred by wearing the dress, as she certainly made herself comfortable while it was blocking (it’s inside out in the next two pictures).

“Um, May? Like the dress really cares.” -Chaos

  1. nice baby dress. Dunno what the cats are so fussed about – it is purple at least!
    10 dyas to knit eh? Well I’d best get a wriggle on with the baby dress I am making – I started three times last week before finding a patternt hat I liked and stopped joining the circle with a nice little twist! I’ve only got like three days to beat your record! LOL

  2. OK, so maybe I’m wrong. I thought I couldn’t knit because it is so warm, here, in TX but that shows some promise!
