The Skadi Dress
I tend to flick between knitting and sewing, although I do sew more than I knit. I think I prefer the more immediacy of sewing. I say immediacy with a reasonable amount of tongue in cheek! I am a member of Ravelry and I have to say, I love that site. I've always liked clothes that are not found on the high street, which is one of the reasons I started sewing and the same goes for knitting. Ravelry is fabulous as it is a huge resource of patterns, mostly from independent designers. One of the patterns I found was the gorgeous Skadi dress by Erica Neitzke It has a lovely vintage feel to it, so right for nowadays. It is knitted in the round and knits up like a dream (and I am new to knitting in the round). My daughter is too old for this (not to mention has developed a severe allergy to dresses) but luckily, we are girl heavy in our family, so my youngest niece was the recipient of this in time for her second birthday. Alas she was distinctly unimpressed, being that her present was clothing, but her mummy loved it! Hope you do too!
