Lovely knitting. Sweet hopeful dress. And, I hate to be the one to tell you but you no longer get to say you don't know how to knit. Knit on!


Oh that is so beautiful!

I actually stopped by because I thought of you this morning. I was perusing patterns on ravelry and came across one that made me think of you.

I have no reason, it just looks like something you would knit.

As an adoptive mom myself, I've been praying for you and your little one - thoroughly. (grin)

here's that sweater:


i am never surprised by what you create. beautiful work alicia. xo


It's gorgeous, what a beautiful dress. I recently re-took up knitting after a very frustrating start. I'm slowly gearing up to more complicated patterns, I hope that one day I will be able to knit something like that, absolutely beautiful.


Sigh. I love that dress. Every new baby girl I have I think I will make her this dress and I never do! Surely this time?

We had the magical (brief!) snow here yesterday too. perhaps all the more magical for being so brief, though I admit I was very sad there wasn't more.

Thinking of you! xox


That is so gorgeous! I wish I could have one in my size to wear as a tunic. So pretty!


Your little dress is beautiful! Enjoy your winter wonderland...

Nina @ Mama Roux

A lovely little dress! You should be very proud. The last photo is magical.


How very lovely! Really,just lovely!


I opened the page and this photo popped up and I was so taken! It is so gorgeous. My favorite of all you have shown so far. I know what you mean- I knit too but I don't feel like I am a knitter. I really do think this dress is beyond beautiful.

That dress is just very sweet. I love it.

It's nice to hear that you didn't take to knitting right off, as I struggled, mightily, with it. I finally gave away my knitting needles and small yarn stash because it just wasn't working.

Maybe I'll take it back up, again, some day.


It's the most delightful little knitted dress that I've seen in a long long time. It makes you want to have one more little girl just to put her in that dress..... wow....


Oh my. That is gorgeous! Does anyone know a baby girl who needs one so I can make one?


Beautiful, beautiful dress!
You know what, I now think you know how to knit!!!!! ;)

I love this one! I love it so much that when I saw it on ravelry I called my mother and demand that she get on and look at it.
Beautiful work. I crochet, but I want to learn to knit too, or maybe I should say that I want to learn to "not knit" soon.


It is gorgeous!

That thing is crazy beautiful. I would run out of patience after about 4 rows of that pattern. :(


How very exquisitely beautiful. Wonderful considered work as ever. Here is a link to my Snowbunny hat from your ravelry page:
Thanks for such a quick and clear pattern. Miriam x


This was the first thing I knit almost a year ago when I found out I was pregnant (even though I didn't know what I was having). I had saved a link to the pattern for years and told myself I could not purchase it until I was actually pregnant. I did end up having a girl and she wore it to church last month. By now, she's already outgrown it, I will put the dress away and save it for the next girl to come along or, if none do- hopefully I will have grandchildren to wear it someday :) You can see mine here:


Oh Alicia! That dress is beautiful. This little girl is going to have the most spectacular wardrobe. That will make the cutest little party dress, with white tights and patent leather mary-janes.*sigh* If there was a grown-up size I would totally wear it. :) And seriously, I think you are officially a knitter.


As I sit here on bed-rest, hoping to bake my little bun for just a few more weeks, you make me wish I'd picked up yarn while I was at my LYS yesterday. I thought I was resisting temptation, with all those soft and pretty yarns around me. But now I feel more like you - that a sweet little pullover, hat, or socks on my needles would have given me more hope and confidence that I can make it through the next month.


Beautiful! I am a bit envious of your ability to knit. I remember reading about how you learned. I guess if I just put forth some effort... I am happy just looking at your gorgeous creations for now, though!

this is one of the most beautiful knitted things i have ever seen, i actually gasped when i saw it. bravo!


Beautiful, beautiful little dress. And what a great photo of your neighborhood! That one should go up on the wall.


okay, your little dresses have amazed me constantly, and now you've convinced me at last. now i know that i MUST learn to knit, just so i can make this dress for myself (scaled-up, of course!). 'twould be so cute with some tights/skinny pants and kneehigh boots! and a crocheted flower in my hair! :)
