Enchanted forest outfit.

Almost 2 weeks ago (yes, that long and I haven't written about it yet!), I've started a knitting challenge we call NEWT in the HPKCHC on Ravelry. If I successfully finish my 3 to 4 months plan I'll get a lot of points for my house. No less than 450 to be precise... if I meet all the intermediate deadlines.

I'm going to knit an enchanted forest outfit: a dress with a cardigan.

The cardigan is a modified Matilda Jane, I'm not fond of the neckline so I'm changing it and I'll add long sleeves because I don't have much use for short sleeved cardigans.

The dress is going to be something based on Nyskabende. As the pattern is freeform there's a lot of stuff that needs to be improvised. I've just started this one, not much to see yet.

And as this blue cotton yarn is pretty hard on the fingers, I needed breaks and made a few greeting cards you can find in my etsy shop: each one is completely unique.
