First and foremost, wow.
It has been an unprecedented few days over here and I'm tickled to see how many of you are sticking around.
Now then. Back to business!

Our last hard frost of the season was just two days ago. But yesterday it was in the 80's, so I think Longest Winter I've Ever Imagined is over (goodbye, Narnia!). Therefore I'm making the transition to some seasonally appropriate projects in my sewing room and my knitting basket.
Yes, I am knitting myself a thick cowl neck sweater that I won't wear until January (I hope), but I also cast on and quickly cast off a sweet little summer dress for Lupine.
The yarn came from a thrift store for 69 cents a skein (there were two, which I held double), and the fabric was part a new purchase and part from my stash.
She's crazy about it.
And so am I. There is just something about seeing my kids wearing clothes that I have made for them. Yum. And when she wears the hat with the dress? Squeal! (This she did while we were foraging ramps this week. I'm not sure I could have been happier. Seriously. Mostly because of the foraging, but the mama-made clothes didn't hurt.)
My Ravelry details are over here if you need the pattern for your own quick little dress!
What is your favorite summer-friendly knitting project?
