“Lovin’ Autumn”

Finally… some sunshine to take photos.  Until this morning, Monday, we haven’t seen the sun since last Wednesday!  It’s been very dark and rainy, and very hard to get some good photos.

I’ve been working on a knitting pattern for ? (it’s a surprise), and taking photos of the steps along the way.  I thought they’d be okay, so kept knitting along.  You know what?  They are all terrible, in the virtual trash those photos will have to go.  Now I have to start knitting another sweater to get (hopefully) better photos.  Since the pattern is written, I can follow it to see if it all makes sense and my counts are accurate.  So, I guess it’s a good thing.  It’s turned into at least an 11 page pattern.  My notes I use when knitting this sweater fill up 1/2 of a page in my 5 x 7 knitting notebook!  See I really do work from gibberish that only I can understand.  lol

So, here is little Sugar, my Fairyland Pukipuki.  I decided I liked the sleeved dress on her after all.  If she’s posed a certain way her arms look fine, I think so anyway.  Isn’t she the cutest little thing!  I never seem to get tired of her sweet face.


Sugar’s a-line elbow length sleeved dress (hand knit in lace weight merino heather) is perfect for fall, no goose bumps on this little girl.  The embroidery on the bodice is a tiny mirrored floral motif and done in colors to coordinate with her leggings.

This cute knit fabric goes so perfectly with her dress.  I still wanted her shoes to fit, so instead of tights made some longish leggings that give the effect of tights.

Of course she found some matching fall blossoms in the woods.  We haven’t had a frost yet, thank goodness, so the flowers are still in bloom.  The silk streamers on her bouquet keep her smiling as they flutter in the breeze.

Now like the bigger girls, Sugar has her very own bangle bracelet with a dangly heart; only Sugar can wear bangle bracelets.





Sugar’s “Lovin’ Autumn” ensemble will be available Tuesday night at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Bye for now. ❤
