Sneak Peek: Lilacs for Lila



The yarn is Tanis Fiber Arts Yellow Label DK in 'Lilac'

Just before Easter, I decide to knit a little lilac-coloured bonnet for my wee one. Coincidentally, my mom bought her a lilac-coloured Easter outfit. Between Guy and I, we must have taken a hundred photos of Lila in her bonnet  but she was so quick that a lot of the best shots were a bit blurry. This was Guy's favourite of the bunch, although it's really a photo of me (my hair is tied back, I didn't get it cut) I've finished up the pattern, and just need to sort out some test knitting and then the pattern will go live! I think this will be a freebie, it's just an easy and fast little bonnet.

What a great photo. The bonnet turned out so nicely. Such a gorgeous colour. Neat that she was given an outfit to match. xo

Oh my goodness, what a cutie! Your daughter is adorable. My daughter developed her own tastes at age 3 and I haven't been able to dress her since, but I sure loved things like this when she was little.

Absolutely adorable! I love the simple elegance of the pattern.

I know all about trying to take pictures of little ones, I am lucky if I get them in the same frame, nevermind in focus.

oh and if you are ever looking for a test knitter :)

Exceedingly adorable! With a couple of friends getting married soon, I might actually have a chance to knit this. :D

You know if you need a tester I would be thrilled to knit up a quick bonnet for you

Julie, that is a very sweet photo of you two. If you need somebody to test a 2T size, I'm up for it. :)

Sweet Little bonnet... I have a couple little girls in my world who will love it! Lila of course is as adorable as ever and just as beautiful as her mama...

I might have to make that, and put it aside in case I ever become an aunt...you and Lila look lovely, as always.

Tanis said...

I love this photo. You look terrific and Lila just happens to be wearing the sweetest little lilac outfit and bonnet. Perfection.

Lisle said...

Lovely. The bonnet, the baby, and you. Great job!

Voie de Vie said...

Totally adorable! I love that lilac outfit, and you (in your brown) are a perfect color foil.

Hope things are well with all of you.

Hilary said...

That is the SWEETEST baby bonnet! And so, so pretty on your girl. I look forward to the pattern! (But totally think you should charge for it. :) )

Chiro Jenn said...

Beautiful! Can't wait to see the pattern :)

Margot said...

This is an absolutely delightful photo of you both, I can understand why it is Guy's favourite. The little bonnet is a delight, the colour is lovely and it goes with her outfit perfectly. What a joy she is for you both. Lila has been very much in my thoughts. Hugs from New Zealand

This is such a beautiful color on her! And I love the detail, it makes such a small piece very beautiful.

Very cute. Love the colour.

Maryse said...

Super cute bonnet and great picture too!

Mari said...

So sweet. Lilacs are my faves!

Zsoofi said...

How cute! How cute baby, how cute bonnet! I love bonnets on babies and what's more, as my babe has some (I mean bonnets) I found them really really practical. Especially if you wrap your baby in a wrap or meitai.
Anyway, I am sure I will knit it, so if you still need a testknitter........
