Finally, an FO!

I finished the Thinking Dress over the weekend! I worked on it while watching random SNL sketches, a Timberwolves victory (no, that isn't a typo), and some football.

Pattern: Thinking Dress by Louisa Harding, available in Miss Bea's Rainy Day
Yarn: Lion Brand CottonEase in a lilac shade
Started: November 4, 2007
Finished: December 9, 2007

Sadly, it seems pretty small to me and I do not think it will fit the girl for whom it was intended. So, I might wind up knitting another one a size larger for her, and give this to someone else.

This was an easy knit and nice for a quick project. I enjoyed doing something for a child that was NOT a hat. The CottonEase was fine, but I did get frustrated when I was picking up stitches around the back and armholes. For some reason, the yarn was really acting splitty at that point.
Here is what the back looks like.
