By now it is 2017 everywhere in the world, so a Happy New Year to all!
My husband and I went for a brisk walk in one of the nearby forest preserves today. The paths were a little treacherous in places, but we were careful and the sun felt so nice. It was the perfect way to start 2017!
My Little Darling, Lucy, is also here with her bright, smiling face (and her itty bitty snow baby) to wish you all the happiest start to 2017! Before most of our snow melted last week Lucy and I made this tiny snow baby. She is still trying to decide if this snow baby is a boy or girl, so she can give it an appropriate name.
While outside she told me that her new sweater coat, hat, and scarf kept her toasty warm.
Lucy is wearing a dress made out of my most favorite snowman print. I LOVE this print! It’s colorful and a little bit primitive looking. There are “zillions” of snowmen lined up on this fabric; all looking equally cute, don’t you think? Snowman lovers will find this print adorable.
I previously used this fabric in 2014 (“Snowman Luv”) to make an ensemble for Gina. I decided to make it less Christmasy this time, so it could be worn more as a winter ensemble.
Isn’t this the cutest fabric! I think they are the happiest little snowmen!
Lucy’s ensemble will be available Monday, January 2, 2017 at 7:00 pm CST on my website.
“My Little Snow Baby” is a one-of-a-kind ensemble, but if you’d like to knit your own sweater coat, the pattern is available on Ravelry. The instructions include a step-by-step guide to add your own patch pockets. Once you see how easy they are to make, you’ll be putting patch pockets on everything! (lol)
Thank you for visiting with me as we start this new year together. Bye for now!
