My new knit designs

I have been designing this summer, while at home getting the repairs completed from all the damage caused during the storms 4/27/11.
Audrey modeling her suntop and then her sundress. The sundress pattern is with a test knitter right now in hopes of selling this pattern.

I have also been designing lace gloves. The teal pair has a ruffle at the cuff.
Not sure I am going to publish this pattern, but it is also
with a test knitter right now.

The cream colored lace gloves, is a different pattern.
The stitch is called drooping dayflower, which instantly caught my eye.

I took the drooping dayflower stitch and designed a glove around it.
This pattern has already been with the test knitter,

and the pattern has been added to Ravelry for purchase.
And I sold my first pattern within 24 hours.

Ravelry does require a login, if you are a knitter and don't
belong you should join, it is free.

Oh my gosh!!! I LOVE that sundress! I want the pattern. Let me know when it is done!
What kind of yarn did you use on it?
It doesn't look like a cotton but I can't tell.

Very nice!

Wall-to Wall...the purple suntop was knit with Batika yarn, I bought it at Stitches South. They assured me 2 pkgs would knit a sundress, even in a size larger than I did. They were wrong, and my own patten was not different than theirs. I wish I had bought 3 skeins.

The pink sundress is knit with Wendy Peter Pan yarn. It is 55% Nylon and 45% Acrlic. "Mild Machine Wash". My test knitter is knitting with Dreambaby, which is easier to find. I hope to see hers today. Think it will be softer.

I love the sundress and top, although I've got to say your model stole the show--it looks like she is used to that!

A lot of talent here! Both are so feminine.
