Another Week - another Wednesday!  And I'm back home now and sitting, knitting, 'cos the weather is pretty awful!  Apparently the rain which lashed down all night was the tail end of Hurricane Bertha.  Hopefully she's all rained out now!

Anyway, here's what I've been mainly knitting - a lacy dress for Sasha...

I'm showing you the pattern because I've only got as far as half a skirt in white and one and a half in blue

Lacy pattern for Sasha dress - white

Sasha lacy dress skirt

It's a fiddly pattern - and on 2mm needles so it is rather slow. When I've finished the skirt part I have to pick up stitches for the bodice. And then there's the sleeves...

Ah well - it keeps me out of mischief I guess!

Incidentally, I have been unable to access Sheila Vincent's website and an email gets no response, so I guess she has stopped producing and selling her patterns.  A shame, because they are lovely. If anyone knows what has happened to her and her patterns - please let me know. You can email me by clicking on the link in the right-hand sidebar.

I love that pattern, and have kept a pretty bed jacket, knitted by my grandmother so many years ago, in exactly the same pattern. I remember her telling me it was on size 2 needles.

Beautiful pattern, the dresses are going to look lovely when finished.

That is very pretty Penny! I look forward to seeing it all finished and on your Sasha!
