Her Pinkness

Her Pinkness (otherwise known as Miss 3) has had a few new knits made for her lately, so I thought I should show her wearing them, since it does happen.  A few weeks ago I posted a picture of her finished Hotshot hoodie in the gorgeous Chocolate Rose colourway of Family Roots Willow Merino. This has been languishing in her drawer due to a wave of warmer weather. Today it was approved as a clothing choice both because of the weather, the pinkness, and the addition of this label.

The label was part of the package of goodies I got last week and Miss 3 has been coveting them ever since. I, of course, was happy to oblige!

The hood on this is definitely too short – I am now hoping to score some leftover trim from somewhere to lengthen it. Miss 3 doesn’t mind it how it is, but I think that it would be good to have it a bit longer. Other than this it’s an excellent fit. I knit the size 4 (goodness, she nearly *is* four too!), and it is a nice roomy fit with plenty of growing space for her. The yarn is lovely – it feels odd when you are knitting it, but I trust the feedback I’ve recieved that it’s amazing in terms of wear and low-pillage. (Sooo not a word, but hey, you know what I mean!)

Always one with her eye on a chance of pink knitting, she noted with some jealousy the yarn I was using to knit her sister a pair of Epicene socks.  I assured her there was plenty for a pair for her, and she waited a little impatiently until they appeared.

And when they did she wasted no time putting them on, and she’s worn them pretty well non-stop since then. So you might need to wait until *after* they’ve been washed for a better photos. Until then…

And now her Pinkness can be dressed from head to toe in pink knitted goodness. Just the way she likes it.

    That little hoodie is so cute! I wish I had been a knitter when my girl was still little and loved pink!

    That is an adorable hoodie! I feel the need to find someone with an appreciative young child and make one.

    I sense this wee one is accustomed to modelling knitted garments, she’s making quite the professional job of it :-).

    When I saw it on Rav the colour didn’t really appeal as I’m not a ‘pink’ person, but seeing it on, I really really love it LOL. Funny aye.

    Oh and those shoes, I want some for myself, thanks 🙂
