Anyway, this is my foray back into knitting: Knitty's Topaz baby dress, for my 3 month old niece, Renate! Patt is here: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring09/PATTtopaz.php
This is Renate and I.
This is the back of the dress, unblocked, so I had to use some props to keep it from curling. I have the front done to just past the colorwork section. I'm using cascade 220 in a bright teal and dark purple--this photo doesn't really show the true colors. The pattern suggests malabrigo, a single ply semisolid yarn, and I can see why: it would be really beautiful with flowing colors.
Renate's dress matches Kara's birthday hat! (pattern: Lee Meredith's Vortex from Knitty)
Random shot of my little corner under my loft: knitting baskets, yoga mat, gatorade, camera bag. favorite things!

enjoy the beautiful weather!
