They are not posted in any particular order and they’re all great giveaways to keep for yourself as you shop and knit for all the loved ones in your life.

Madeline Dress

Over the summer, my favorite LYS owner and friend had a daughter. She named her Madeline.

Madeline and her mother along with my son and I often go for walks together. We live a few blocks away and one of the best things about moving to Virginia a little over a year ago is having this wonderful friend and her new daughter nearby.

Madeline’s mother asked me to design and knit Maddy a holiday dress, specifically for Santa pictures. We have a deep and mutual love for all things Neighborhood Fiber Company, so 1 hank of the Studio Sport yarn later, the Madeline Dress was born. A simple silhouette knit in the round, seamless, no buttons, no fuss, a touch of lace and a wide opening for giant baby heads makes this an ideal holiday gift.
