FO Vintage Dress

This was a simple McCall's pattern that has lots of variations.  I got the fabric from a garage sale and it was marked 1969.  I washed it and then cut it out.  There is zero give to the material - next time I make this dress I will use a more elastic material.  Also the sleeve instructions sort of suckered.  But otherwise it only took me a few hours and came out cute!

This was a run crazy fast knit.  I might have to make it again.  Started on May 15 and finished on June 1st.  I can see doing this out of scrap yarns next time.  Really does fit 6 months to 4 years as well.  The edging is icord and really fun!!!

FO Gathered Pullover

Let me start off by saying a sweater out of sport weight - why do I do this to my self?  These things take forever! 

Project Details: I started on November 8th 2014 and finished today May 8th 2015.  I know!!!!  I held two strands of yarn together to get the gauge I needed on size 7 needles.  I only wish it was a bit longer (but since it was bottom up I didn't know how long to make it). 

I love how fitted it is and it is very very soft (which are good things).

FO Falling Water Shawl

Project Detail:
Falling Water Shawl.  I started this on January 23rd and finished it on February 17th.  I had some good car driving in there to finish it up.  Took 550 yards of yard and came out just perfect.   I liked the pattern a lot and I made the large size on size 8 needles.  The only thing that was strange was that I had to move the stitch markers for the repeats every RS of the pattern and the chart seemed a bit off.
