Anna Requests Knitting

It has happened. My 2 and a half year old has learned to look at knitting books and request items. While I find this exciting (perhaps some day she too will knit), it is also a bit frightening. I have to find the right pattern, the right yarn, the right... and then maybe it will end up like her poncho--refused.

Here's what she wants:

The pattern is from

My husband bought me this book for Christmas, and Anna seems to adore the pink dress with the star (or flower, but star in her mind) on it. In pink. Ok. Those of you who heard my spiel about not wanting a little girly girl who wears pink can laugh now. She loves the dress in pink.

The pattern recommends a cotton Jaeger yarn, but it isn't machine washable, so that won't work for my little messy child. I got some linen yarn to test from our LYS, but Anna thinks it is too scratchy--she is very picky about soft clothing. So, I think I will probably end up using a cotton blend from Lion Brand. It isn't exciting, it isn't fancy, but it should wear well and be soft.
