A promise is always a promise





This is the " Merry Maiden's Dress" by Gryphon Perkins ( INTERWEAVE KNITS, spring 2007). The whole project took me about two weeks to finish. But I couldn't manage it without the help of dear Gryphon. The trough is I found a mistake in the publication and I contact with Gryphon. She corresponded immediately with kindness and professionalism. And...ta ta! One of the most complete knitting experiences I have ever had. A source of pride and satisfaction for me and the perfect dress for Georgia. It moves with her and she feels comfort and elegant! I promised Gryphon to send some photos, so here they are!

I used substitute yarns . I always do that. Not the slightest possibility to find the recommended yarns in Greece. I usually work with Spanish, Italian or German yarns. But this is a different story, maybe for a next post.
So,the yarns are:
Merinos Extra by MONDIAL ( Italy), a blend of 50% new wool and 50% acrylic ( body, skirt and sleeves).
Cats Super Mohair by STAHL SCHE WOOL ( Germany), an other blend of 70% mohair and 30% new woo ( the borders).
For my great relief they matched exactly to the gauge.
Now I' m ready to repeat the project, in a spring version this time! I can not resist the temptation. If you, out there, could only see the joy at my daughters eyes... you could surely go immediately and find a little girl ( a daughter, a nice ,a grand daughter, a godchild, anybody) and ask: Do you want a nice dress for the Easter? ( or the Hanuka, or the Ramazan or, or...)
I promise I' ll make you the best!

Wow, that looks great! Thank you so much for posting it, with such lovely pictures. Your maiden is a beauty. One of these days I'll have to make one for my little maiden too.
