So I Knit A Dress And... I

I didn't know what I wanted to do. I just got excited about this shirt that I made for my daughter and just decided to go all the way. So I knit this!! 

I got some Red Heart with Love yarn and cast on 200 stitches for the bottom then did decreases all the way for the next twenty yards then once I got to 95 stitches,  I began to knit. I added in some Knit Picks Chroma yarn and worked that in, although I'm not 100 percent convinced I like the results but everyone else seems to. I wanted the dress to have something. My daughter wants me to knit her one in all black now. I just may do that since it didn't take much time to do this. I knit this dress over the course of three to four days and just finished three hours ago. I blocked it and it blocked pretty well. Acrylic yarn doesn't block as well a s wool but a nice steam iron does the job pretty well. Well enough for me.

What's next? Finishing an order and knitting a skirt for my daughter to match the knit shirt that I've just made her.
 She didn't like the colors so I actually knit the dress for me. I'd like to knit a nice little bolero with this so I am going to the store and buy this yarn so that I can finish it.

A Knit Along #1- lace shirt

This is the shirt from the back that I knitted
This is the shirt from the front. There was extra in the front so I just added a little rose button. Just for decoration

I casted on 95 stitches of some regular yarn. I knit the first 12 rows in K2p2 for ribbing. And then knitted.... This is what I have so far....

In this picture above, I had not knitted in the loose ends.  I did a cell mesh knit for decoration but I want to use a paw print decoration in the future with strategically placed yarn overs.

This is the yarn that I used. RED HEART with Love. This yarn tends to be softer than the regular brand, which I love. I frequently used this yarn for my boleros because it is so soft on the skin and the colors are beautiful. With this yarn , be careful that you use the yarn from the right DYE LOT or there will be huge differences in color. So pay attention to this fact when making garments. 

Starting off with a K2P2 rib, I knew that this was going to be perfect.

So after knitting the base part of the shirt, I casted on 120 stitches and knit for about 15-20 rounds to make the top part, which goes over the shoulder. Then you attach, leaving enough space for the arms to go through. If you want to make a tube top then you don't add this part. 

This is the finished product after blocking. This acrylic yarn doesn't block as well as 100% wool does but it did the trick and I was happy with the results. I am thinking of adding this shirt to my collection along with some other items that I've designed.

New Yarn from Knit Picks

This yarn is from the Mighty stitch collection. I can't wait to do a sample piece with this new collection. 

It tends to split a bit and I'm not happy with it. The ball I used wouldn't look good in a garment but it feels good in your hand and it has a beautiful sheen. The color that I purchased was Pucker. It is a superwash wool and acrylic so it's great in the machine. 

The other yarn I purchased was some good old fashioned Comfy Worsted in Celestial. I am making a school sweater for my daughter. Hopefully she will like it.
