NEEDLES & KNITS
Some of you may have a daughter, granddaughter, or niece that would absolutely love this summer dress. It is designed for the 2 - 6 year age group.
Our own Gabriela (she teaches all the knitting classes at Needles and Knits) designed two girls patterns, The Little Flapper Dress and The Little Girl's Sundress. Gabriela went back to the good old days of the "tube top" and the roaring twenties era, and based the patterns around it. Stretchy tube top, I-cord straps and reverse crochet are all incorporated in the dresses.
Gabriela used Fixation yarn, a cotton and elastic yarn that provides a little stretch for the top and Cotton DK for the bottom.
Free patterns available for download. We would love to see your creations and welcome any comments or questions.
Today is a special day in Norway!!!!!
Norwegian Constitution Day is the National Day of Norway and is an official holiday observed May 17 each year. This was the day Norway became an independent country as the Constitution was signed May 17, 1814. So today marks Norway's 200th year as an independent nation. The day is referred to simply as syttende mai (may seventeenth).
Ella, Tove's granddaughter who lives in Norway, is wearing a knitted dress in fairisle.
