Happy New Year!

So its 2009 and time to get back to work!  But before I leave 2008 behind let's have a little look at christmas, starting with dress you may remember I was knitting for my unborn niece.  I talked about it a couple of times here and here.

It turned out really well and made a great present for my sister and her husband.

I also made the matching shoes which fasten with little buttons.

And here is the dress.  It fastens with a row of buttons at the back.  The yarn is so soft, perfect for a little baby dress!  When I started knitting it I had no idea what size it would turn out as the pattern called for 3 ply and I used 4 ply.  It just seems impossible to get 3 ply in nice colours!  I estimate that it will fit at about 3/4months.  We shall see...
