    About

    WIP. Customer purchased the wool and pattern book together. Decided she wanted this dress knitted in Aran rather than DK as pattern suggests. So I have had to make adjustments for sizing to be correct. The dress was shorter than the customer would like and adjustment has been made to accommodate this also. The customer purchased only two contrast colours instead of three. So asked if I could put maIn colour in the sequence patterned colour bands. The pattern has plain sleeves to which the customer requested pattern at the cuff to be added. See completed photo. Phew❣️

        @Vix: I am sure I will never accept an order like that again. Rather I will obtain yarn according to pattern

        @Penelope H: all that matters but what a conundrum to work out 😜
