The models used in this group are:
Amelia (a one of a kind Wenarsky repaint); Poppy (a Frido dungarees girl from 1968); John (early baby boy); Rowena (a limited edition trendon Kiltie).
I had great pleasure collecting the materials and wools for this collection. The colours were wonderful to work with.
Amelia is wearing a cute outfit hand knitted using two different sock wools. I loved the combination of the smudgy looking sock wools with the tie dyed rusty toned needlecord.
She is wearing socks knitted using lace weight shetland wool and beautiful brown leather boneka shoes.
I loved the control of the striped pattern contrasting with the random patterning on her trousers.
Amelia is a beautiful one of a kind girl created by Kelly Wenarsky. She has beautiful hazel eyes with hints of green.
Poppy is wearing a beautiful traditional style dress in a pretty cotton fabric. It has an upright collar and fine cuffs.
The slip and pantalettes are a beautiful contrasting colour picking up the main colour in the dress perfectly.
She is wearing ivory socks hand knit using lace weight shetland wool and beautiful cream leather old style laced boneka boots.
I love the early girls wearing their hair in plaits. It always looks so cute.
John my handsome early baby Gregor is wearing one of my new designs for this collection.
I used two wools in this outfit. The same patterned rusty coloured sock wool used in the outfit below and a lovely warm toned cream wool. They were used to great effect to knit the striped hat and footed trousers.
He has a beautiful cuddly Steiff polar bear which coordinates perfectly with his outfit.
John has the most amazing dark brown eyes.
His aran sweater features cabling on the front and sleeves. It fastens with 3 buttons on the back.
The outfit is finished with a lovely little ribbed scarf.
This outfit is just too cute for words.
This coat pattern has been a work in progress for a while. I really like how it has turned out and it is very cute made in the space dyed sock wool.
I wanted the fairisle top underneath to be fine and light and to pick up the colours in the coat without being the same. The blue worked as a good contrast. The oatmeal background makes the top look summery. I used lace weight shetland wool for this top.
In the end, I teamed this outfit with bootleg style denim trousers, as I loved how it brought out the blue pattern in the fairisle top.
Her socks are oatmeal coloured lace weight shetland wool and she wears boneka brown leather sandals.
Rowena, my beautiful LE Kiltie, suits these colours perfectly.
She has the loveliest light auburn hair and clear blue/grey eyes.
