Her Majesty

I made this little dress for our niece Rachel for Christmas - I aptly named it 'Her Majesty' - for it is a wonderful majestic purple colour, the colour of royalty - and alas she is the youngest of four sisters and I think she will soon rule the roost :).

This was a fun knit, one thing though weaving in ends was I thought good and after I gave it a quick handwash and blocked it I noticed two had popped out - how frustrating. I've tucked them back in with a crochet hook. I don't know why it happened.

I am probably going to try making the adult version for one of my older nieces or use a thicker yarn and bigger needles to make her one. I think something other than sock yarn would be nicer for an 8 year old's top.
