ballerina wrap

The first  #finishit2014 project of the year. This knitted ballet wrap was started in May of last year, the pieces were all finished before baby Ace was born and then it just got left, abandoned in pieces – a very dangerous thing to do with a project intended for a rapidly growing child.

Finally I was motivated to sew the pieces together before we headed down south for our family summer holiday. I thought perhaps it would get some wear in the cooler nights – but it didn’t. Swimwear regardless of the weather was the outfit of choice until it came time to jump into PJs.

Not to worry. There have been some breezey evenings in these parts despite the baking hot days so perhaps it will get a little bit of wear before she out grows it. The makey bit was super duper satisfying, even when I sewed it up wrong and had to unpick it and re-sew it – the fun in the making is the main thing, isn’t it?



  1. Wow! That's awesome! That is really well done! Good job on the knit & the finishing!

  2. Such a lovely ballet wrap and it looks like she loves it!

  3. Gorgeous! It looks roomy enough that she will be able to wear it for a while longer. I'm sure it will get lots of use. I love the decorative neck/wrap-line.
