Sweetness, Cotton Tails and Pinafores

Posted in Classic Elite Yarns, knitting, My Projects, The Local Needle Yarn Shop, Yarn, Yarn Shop activity at 9:35 am by outdoorknitter

There are so many sweet things in the world. 

Sweet to the taste… sweet on the eyes… sweet as in nice… and, sweet because that was how they were made.

I could just eat this little one up…she’s not only as sweet as they come, but a real treasure to us all.

Here’s Rae modeling one of Jill Eaton’s new designs, the Pinafore Dress.  She looks a little like the model, wouldn’t you say?

This was a very simple knit, made from Jill Eaton’s new yarn, CottonTail.  CottonTail is 100% cotton and completely washable and dryable.  This dress has already been washed and dried in the dryer!

The pattern called for size US 8 needles.  However, even for someone that knits a little on the tight side, this was way too lose.  I moved down to a 7 and fabric looked better and I was then slightly under gauge, close enough though. 

I added a little extra with buttons I found at Stitches South. 

Jill Eaton’s CottonTail yarn and Pinafore Dress pattern can both be found at The Local Needle yarn shop.
