tea and crumpets

i just joined my first knit-along online. i am going to (attempt to) make this little dress you see here, a pattern called crumpets, from libby baker (available over at chiagu.com). i think that, instead of an actual dress, i am going to make a top like the one wendy made--i like the idea of being able to pair this with some jeans for the active little girlfriend. now i just need to figure out what size to make, what yarn to use, where to get beads, and how to do that weird picot cast on. whew! i am a little scared of this thing, but also totally excited to try it! you guys think good thoughts for me and pray i don't totally snafu it. i probably won't get started on this till the weekend, but watch for updates (slow ones as this is going to take me a while!)

That looks totally cool!! I'm envious of your knitting courage. :)

I think you'll do great! I have to confess, I didn't do the picot cast-on. I chickened out and anyways, I thought it wouldn't show up with the yarn that I chose, so there!

I am so excited to see how it turns out. I have thought about knitting that, but I have no girls to knit for. And all my expecting friends are having boys.

Keep me posted.
