A Masterpiece

If you saw the picture of my delightful 8 year old niece, Emiley, below then you know this dress and hat I knitted for her are from several years ago.  I think she is 2 maybe 3 in this picture. My knitting teacher, Birgitta, helped me a lot with this early project.  I was amazed and delighted with myself when I finished it!  I am still so grateful to my sister, Donna, for getting this picture taken of Em in the dress & hat.  Treasures all:  Emiley, Donna, the dress & the hat.

Both the dress and hat are Fiber Trends patterns. It's been so long since I knit it that the only thing I can remember about the lavender yarn is that it was a wool/cotton blend.
