I Like Lavender

It seems that I shy away from pink for little girls the more the world tries to push me into it.
Don't get me wrong, I love PINK and I dressed my cute little girls in it plenty of times, but I don't get the current kids obsession with it.
Really there are many other beautiful colors out there. Great turquoise's, and peachy oranges, and beautiful blues to suite a frilly or girly girl just wonderfully. Lately my color of choice for baby girls and apparently now little girls has been LAVENDER. If you think about it, it is quite versatile. It pairs well with so many colors. Yellow or lime green are great with it. It even goes nicely with pink, and it is plenty feminine.
So when searching for yarn to make Lena a new grandma sweater, my baby blues landed firmly on the variegated lavender in the colorful yarn store.
And this is what I ultimately came up with for the finished product. You could even argue that some of the variegation in it is actually PINK.
It has a self bow on the hat that matches the one at the neckline closing. I hope she has a few things to wear with it.
She does look cute in lavender, doesn't she?


  1. I love the lavenders. And the turquoises, too.


  2. I love it. You are so talented!

  3. I'm with you on that, I am so tired of pink already and she hasn't even been born yet.
