More crumpets

I am now three skeins (50 g each) into Bean's dress. We took a car trip to visit grandpa, who lives about an hour and a half away and I got to bliss out with mindless stockinette in the round with the nice, soft Shine Worsted there and back. The skirt part of the dress is now about 2" long.

Since the skirt has twice as many stitches as the bodice, it is going to be A LOT more stockinette. There is nothing better than the mindless knitting of stockinette in the round to relax and achieve a zen-like state. Or at least as close to one as a mother of a 3-1/2 year old and a 1-1/2 year old can ever hope to get.
