What's snuggly, warm and purple?


Just a quick post this time - Madelyn is sick again , overtired, not sleeping and squirming on my lap with a dr appointment in a few minutes, but I had to drop in and post some pictures of her in her new hand-dyed and hand-knit cardigan. Here she is in all her squishiness modeling "Helena", knitted in super soft Treliske, an organic merino from New Zealand (one of my favourite yarns to knit with) hand dyed by me with some of my growing stash of gaywool dyes.


And a sneak peak on something else (get the sunnies out!) I finished today that will soon be in the mail:

I love the colours (for both) - I love purple on little girls. Did you hand dye the other one too, it's very vibrant.
