In my last post I showed you my newly knitted and blocked yellow sweater dress for the Little Darling dolls. Usually, I have a print fabric that guides my embroidery thread colors. This dress, having no print fabric to go along with the ensemble, is open to whatever embroidery colors I choose.
I looked through past knitwear made with this same yellow thread (Aunt Lydia’s Bamboo Crochet Thread) and found some palettes that looked inspiring to me. I was surprised to see the dresses are all tiny ones. Hmm… I guess I had it in my head to ‘save’ this sunshiny yellow bamboo thread because it is now discontinued. Well, that’s no fun! I hereby vow to ‘use it up’ and make sweaters or sweater dresses for each of my girls (dolls) who wants one.
And here’s one made for Patience–no embroidery, but love the fabric’s color palette, very summery.
So, which palette(s) is/are your favorite(s)? I’d love to know…
