We're back!

Hi all,

As you've maybe imagined I was on Easter holiday at the Belgian coast with very limited computer access. But fear not, behind the screens I kept working on a couple of pieces!
On a small side note ... I had way too many things in my projects travel bag that I didn't even touch - but better too much than too little! :-)

First of all "Sleepy Hollow". It will be bigger than I imagined it would be. Maybe I should've taken a higher count than the 32-ct I'm working on (the count mentionned with the pattern).

I had to put it on the floor to have a convenient "shot" ;-)
And then I also started knitting on a dress for my eldest daughter (7 years) which will be followed by another dress for my youngest one (almost 5) meaning that my fingers will suffer :-). I had to google certain things because I'm a beginner and some of the explanation given was more for the intermediate knitter in my opinion (luckaly not much though).

Progress so far - the back is almost finished ... now the front and sleeves
and then on to dress number two! ;-)
 I'll come back soon with some new progress pictures on both (I'm on a roll here)!
