It’s Twofer Thursday!

Alas the week is nearly over… already, and I haven’t gotten either of these new ensembles for the Little Darlings available yet.  So, I’m offering them both at the same time.  Yippie!

First up is “My Favorite Roses”, a lilac sweater dress ensemble.  I picked my favorite pastel colors to embroider these roses.  Aren’t they yummy?  Both Lucy and Gina are here to model this sweater dress ensemble for you.

Bamboo sweater dresses are the perfect knits for warmer weather which we all are having, or wishing for at this time of the year.  This is the fourth bamboo sweater dress that I’ve made for the Little Darlings.  Last year I made one in natural, pink, and white.  If you want to reminisce about those sweater dresses you can click on the names of the colors.

Next up, is “Spring Beauty”.  I love this little cardigan so much better now.  I feel that all of the motifs are well balanced with each other and each one is a nicely composed bouquet.  Yay!  If you want to see how it used to look go here.  This sweater is knit with lace weight baby alpaca/silk yarn.  It is VERY soft!  I made the neckline a bit wider with a lace pattern edge.

Gina is modeling “Spring Beauty” for you.  I took advantage of our beautiful pink magnolia bush in bloom for a few photos with Gina.
