Delighted to get this commission from Andy Ross (Shetland Tweed Company) following a lovely visit to my Open studio for Shetland Wool Week 2016. I knitted the lace front and back sections separately this time. It was difficult to get the stocking stitch edges tight enough on my first dress with 3 needles knitted round. Sewed them together this time with a much better seem finish. Also knitting in the beads using a crochet 0.6mm hook has shortened the time from all the stringing on I did before, so much easier! Very proud of this dress.
