Björkette marks my first adventure into clothing. The name for this project came about because it reminds me of the swan dress Björkette wore to the 2001 Academy Awards, a decade ago.

Unfortunately, I ran out of the Bernat and had to buy a supplement. While at Michaels, mom tried to convince me to continue with Red Heart Baby Clouds (Pale Pink); I finally relented because I seemed to remember that I had some Red Heart Baby Clouds (Cloud) at home, which would provide for a smoother gradient. With the thicker Red Heart Baby Clouds I had to switch to a J hook, but I like the effect that resulted – a kind of hem/border.

This will be a gift to my cousin Amanda, who informs me she is having a girl. She better be sure or else she is going to have a Princess Boy.
