Sea Witch is Complete

Once I got going with this knit I couldn't stop. Making the pieces in the round left nothing to seam and it seemed to knit up really quick. Both pieces are made pretty much the same except for the casing. I used yarn overs to allow for an I-cord waist tie on the skirt. I only used one yarn over on the inside of the top casing which I pulled elastic through. Not trusting that elastic could keep up with the bonny lass I sewed in some I-cord shoulder ties for good measure.

Maybe this wasn't the most complicated thing that I've ever made but it sure was fun...and portable. I was able to bring it to DH's PT appointments. Of course the real challenge is will my niece like it? I won't know that for a while. But her Dad thinks it will tickle her little Princess heart.

I definitely will use the Cotton Classic again and I have enough to make something else. Maybe a top for me?

Happy crafting!

Squeeeeee! That is so freaking cute. I have really enjoyed watching my CALers - you all do such an amazing job. Maybe you'll get modeled shots for us someday, too....

CAL nieces are going to be the most adorably outfitted little girls around. The pattern stitch is fantastic.
