“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.


Alice’s “A Little Wish for Spring” will be available tonight (January 12, 2017) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.

How about you?  Are you faring well this winter?  I’d love to hear about your winter where you live.

    Alice looks so nice and warm yet ready for a Valentine and spring too. Exciting outfit.
    Wishing for dry weather here as we have had still more rain. We have more than enough stored water for the next several years for northern CA, so please tell the rain people to turn it off! Hoping to take a run up to view flood damage in the Sierra, but the main highway (80) to Reno finally opened again after several days of being closed. Meaning that the side roads have not been yet plowed so there would be no way to even get close to the cabin right now. Always something.
    Must try some more knitting practice. Haven’t done any more for awhile. 🙂

      Hi Joy and thank you. When it rains it pours! Weren’t things drying out so much that fires were starting from the dryness last year? It would be nice if Mother Nature could spread the moisture out a little bit! I do hope the rain will end soon and that your cabin is okay.
