“Blossoms for my Love-ly”

Hello everyone!  I had a busy day yesterday.  Patsy’s new ensemble got finished, photographed, and (almost) ready to make its debut tonight!  Yay!

And, it’s PINK!

Yes, more “creating with pink” is coming from my studio.  This time my pink creation is for Patsy and Ann Estelle, lucky girls.

Patsy is wearing a dress with rosy colored roses scattered on a warm white ground.  Her “light as a feather” cardigan is knit with pink lace weight mohair/silk yarn.  A pair of mirrored image embroidered rose motifs pick up the deep rosy color in the dress.  Ribbon, pearls, and English cotton Cluny lace further embellish this new ensemble.

“A Little Wish for Spring”

So far winter has not gotten the best of me.  It should have really; we’ve had a LOT of extremely gloomy days!  However, I am enjoying the coziness inside my house with cups of tea, twinkle lights around the window, and a fire in the fireplace.

So . . . Alice and I are only sending out “A Little Wish for Spring”.  It is so nice to see roses, even if they are the embroidered kind.

I chose Alice to model this ensemble because she looked the prettiest in it.  Her coloring goes perfectly with warm, neutral, and rosy colors.  This pink yarn is a little bit neutral—it is a heathered yarn with very faint hints of lavender and warm red.  So all three primary colors are accounted for to make this yarn a neutral color even if it is “pink”.

Alice’s beret features a hand made silk ribbon bow in a hand dyed warm lavender with ecru pearls decorating the center.  (Alice’s beret is knit from my beret pattern which is available for your knitting pleasure.)

I chose the embroidery colors from my notes when I made Patsy’s sweater dress.  I added the very pale peachy pink colonial knots for a pop of light.  You can see Patsy’s sweater dress set here.

I am currently working on this sweater dress knitting pattern which will be ready for purchase very soon.  It will have two sleeve length options and two dress length options.  This is the short sleeved and shorter length version.  The Little Darlings have adorably shaped arms and legs which I like to show off.
