Just the yarn inspired me to design this. It is perfect for summer, is machine washable and great for children. A child can wear it for a few summers. I have shown a younger child and a 2 years older child wearing it as a top. This top/dress matches the Sunshine Bag.

The love that I have for knitting and the pure joy that it brings me has been passed down to me from both my mother and my grandmother. Decades later, my passion for knitting has only deepened. I know that knitting will always be an intrinsic part of my life, and I am excited to conjure up new ideas, designs and projects. Besides knitting I love crocheting, cross-stitching, sewing, cooking, listening to music, watching movies, etc, etc, etc.--I wish a day was longer sometimes! I find indulging in creative pursuits is very therapeutic and relaxing much like yoga.
