Go Check on Granny

Granny's just as SQUARE as ever, she isn't as HOLEY as she used to be ...... but she isn't KNOTTY either!
Variation on the "Granny Square" by Kelly Klem.

My sweet Katie is four years old now!

Little Katie is the one who made me "quit my day job" four years ago.
As a newborn she absolutely would not sleep unless I held her. While it is completely delightful to hold a baby I needed to feel more productive for the sake of my family.
I soon discovered that I could knit to my heart's content while snuggling my darling late comer. (I was 44 years old and already had 13 and 10 year old daughters when she came into our lives)
My sweetie pie never fails to inspire my design muse.
This Reversible Wrap Dress makes Katie feel like the princess she is. (Yes, she is also my biggest fan.) You cannot put this dress on inside out. On the flip side of the cotton floral is a dressier chiffon whose skirt is gathered in three full widths of fabric. This pattern will become available at my Etsy shop: in little girl sizes 18 months, 2 and 4 years old soon. PDF.
