Crumpets and Clotted Cream

I saw Crumpets not long after it was published in 2004, and I always knew I wanted to knit it. Oh, but that skirt, and the miles of stockinette I'd have to endure... not for me.

No beads or ribbons, either, nothing that could bother my one year-old niece. The skirt is eyelet cotton with a cotton organza layer so that she doesn't have to show her nappies to the world. :)

If we're lucky, perhaps Grandma will get a picture of her in it sometime!
