It feels so good to have this ensemble for the Little Darlings finally finished! This was the other one I started in early December. Sheesh! Since all I want to do lately is knit, I had to add this to my “to do” list to get this one completed—and I’m glad I did. I really enjoy seeing my happy Little Darling, Lucy, enjoying it so much.
See how happy . . . and cozy warm she looks! Her sweater coat and cap set is knit with merino wool/angora yarn. It is slightly fuzzy with a halo and is quite soft. The sweater coat is knit with my pattern. I shortened it by one buttonhole’s length and omitted the pockets. The hand embroidery on this sweater coat and cap is pretty and feminine and coordinates with the dress print.
The cotton print I selected for the dress is a calico from a “Little House on the Prairie” collection. The Cluny laces in this ensemble are from England. The scalloped lace is cotton and the sturdier lace used for the sash is nylon, both are off white in color.
Lucy’s other accessories include a hand knit wool scarf, heart charm bracelet, pink cotton tights, and a Teddy bear which is customized to coordinate with this set.
Lucy’s “Warm Hugs and Kisses” ensemble is one-of-a-kind and will be available tonight (January 28, 2018) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend, my friends! Thanks for stopping by!
Oh, and dear Lucy is sending you a warm hug and kiss . . . xoxo. Hope it warms up your day.
Love how the lace just peeks out from the skirt on this one. I can tell Lucy likes it a lot!
I hope you had a great weekend, Joy. Thanks so much! ❤
Utterly adorable. I love it that Teddy has his own matching scarf!
Thanks so much, Jane. Lucy made sure that Teddy dressed like her. Have a great day! ❤

Hi, Terri. I know… time goes by sooo fast. I appreciate hearing from you whenever you get the chance though. ❤
I don't buy many dark background prints, but I "needed" this one in not one, but two colorways. Plus, the fact the calicos are from a "Little House on the Prairie" collection, well, that made them all the more precious.
Hope the temps are warming up a bit for you. Have a great day, Terri!
