I love designing and knitting baby things. The pretty sweaters, cute hats and the tiny booties – oh, I can’t have enough of baby knits. Luckily, the extended family and friends keep making babies and I am more than happy to knit for the new additions to the family.
Priti Dress was borne out of one such opportunity. After knitting many plain, textured cardigans for a few baby boys in the family, I was itching to knit something pretty and lacy for a change. I fell in love with this lace pattern and a quick swatch and two later, I was knitting away on the dress. The soft, cotton yarn in its bright yellow color and the delicate lace were made for each other. After I knit the dress in yellow, I had to cast on for another in what else, but pink! This was made for sisters and I hope they get to wear this one day and play matchy-matchy game.
