Jumping sun

I am alive...Yes indeed, I have been busy knitting and writing letters. I have knitted a big cardigan for myself, but no picture yet. I am waiting for a good picture day. 

My Botanica Medallion Cardigan is slowly coming along, it's unfortunately slightly boring to knit the everlasting long edge round the medallion bit.

So, I decided I needed a easy quick knit, So I went for the Jumping Sun dress. It was really simple to knit, but I had to change the decreasing a bit. My 6 years old Princess is tall and slim, so I decreased every 2 round about 6 or 7 times..until I felt it was enough. 
The pattern is really easy to follow and I love it. It was a bit difficult to make sure all the triangles were the right way though/

And the little bows with a bead in the middle, these bows really "make" the dress a little extra.
