Smilla's Linen Dress

Do you remember All You Knit is Love and my Balloon Pants?  Well, that book is chock full of great stuff.  We have a few samples at the shop right now, and my friend Laura was inspired by Smilla's Dress.
She is expecting her little bundle of baby any day now, so she chose a linen blend for her summer version.  Just two balls of Classic Elite Firefly made the smallest size, and she had a good bit left over.  She reports that it was a fast knit, too.  I can assure you that it is even cuter in real life, and might be unbearably adorable on an actual baby.
Sally ordered several copies of the book, so we have plenty on the shelves right now.  The new shades of Firefly are really lovely, too.
The hardest part of this project will be choosing a color, don't you think?
