An old WIP

Rather than start a new project or pick up one of my large WIPs, I will be finishing up this little one first.

The pattern is Sweet and Swingy Dress from the  May/June 2009 Crochet Today. So I probably started this right around May 2009. I had planned to donate it to Stitches from the Heart, which used to have a fabulous store local to me (I think I bought this yarn on their super-sale rack too). They closed to store and moved their main operation, and this project got shoved aside.

First comes the fun part of trying to figure out what size I was making!

The book is Ivyland by Miles Klee. I love a good dystopia, and this one is on the 2013 Tournament of Books short list. I have already read 5 on the full list of 19. I really just started this one though, so I don't really have an opinion just yet.

  1. I think this will be a lovely dress, and if you are donating it to charity, you'll be making one little girl very happy!

  2. I'll have to check that book out. I love a good dystopia too!

  3. Sweet dress. I like the stitching on the very bottom. Glad you picked it up again - should be a nice feeling once it's done. I had a blanket like that once - took me forever but after 3 years I finally made myself finish it.
