Eleanor’s dress

10 04 2008

Anyone out there wondering what happened to Eleanor’s dress that I was knitting? Well, I finally finished it. I had to remove the neck and painstakingly reknit loosely. I say painstakingly because I do NOT knit loosely. I’m happy to report that not only does it now fit over head it still fits her all together! Granted only for about a month, maybe two but still! I was so sure that I had procrastinated so long that it was now too small for her. Thank goodness I was wrong.

Now I just have to figure out how to re-motivate myself when I make a mistake in my knitting. When I realize something has gone amiss I tend to put it aside for a long, long time and work on other projects. Lessons learned: 1) Must knit all necklines LOOSELY 2) Don’t wait so long to fix the problem/jump back in sooner.

I am so jealous!! But that is such a cute little number. Ummm When I have fluff ups in my sewing projects, I tend to procrastinate too. Eleanor seems to know that she looks a star in her new little number. What a cutie and I have serious hair envy.

I love it! She looks adorable.

I do the same thing: whenever I make a mistake, I just put the project aside. This means I have a crazy number of unfinished projects. An outstanding number. Often the mistakes are easy but I hate going backwards on a project. Ugh. I need help!

This reminds me that I have a little dress, that doesn’t even have a mistake, that I started knitting ages ago. I should pick it up and start working on it again. It is so close to being finished!

Dress looks great!! I know what you mean, I started a dress for my daughter 2 yrs ago-I am going to have to crochet a panel for each side so it will fit her!
