Yarn Along

I've succumbed!!
Last year I did the Outfit-A-Long with Andi Sutterlund and lladybird and loved it.  I didn't feel up to a dress at the time, so made a skirt and a Myrna.  I wasn't going to do this year as I felt I had other projects lined up.
That was until Friday when I saw the announcement for this year.
And that got me thinking...
So I'm doing it this year.  I am going to make a Megan dress from Love at First Stitch


And knit the featured Sweater Vianne by Andi.
And these are my materials
The really good thing is - in the spirit of Love Your Library, Three pieces are from stash - the material, the yarn and the dress pattern I had already.  I had to buy the sweater pattern but that was discounted as it was part of the KAL.
I am still reading The Secret Life of Bees and in honour of that I made some cakes for my students this week as they leave me to do their exams!
Linking with NicoleGinny and snapdragon crafts.

  1. What a sweet teacher you are to year your students. The dress looks great and will be a terrific combination with the Cardigan.

  5. Love the cupcakes!! So cute. Good luck with the Out-fit-Along, it's always satisfying to do a stash dive and come up with most of the project!
