A Blue Ballerina Ta-dah!

PATTERN: Saffron by Elena Nodel 
YARN: Wendy Sorrento DK - 45% cotton/ 55% acrylic 
Project notes here

With only five minutes to spare, the second Saffron was finished in time for ballet. Little Miss is delighted with it - ruffles, ribbon, and a touch of pink - what's not to like?!? The biggest problem was getting a picture which wasn't blurry from all the twirling. Having used them together before I am confident in saying that both the pattern and the soft cotton/acrylic yarn are great for a 'girly' little girl who can be sensitive to wool, and work well together to produce a scrumptiously soft garment which I know will be well used.

There's another "almost FO" in my bag - the crochet wrap is done - so this weekend I'll be adding some embellishment and some edging - pop back for a peek (and the pattern mods to make it in child's size) on Sunday. In the meantime you can find the links for more finished objects here*. Today I'm heading out for a hair transformation and taking LM to a Pumpkin Party. Hope you have a lovely day too x

*I'm too early to give you the direct link, this week's post should be up soon :) 


  1. It is beautiful! Someone looks very pleased with it too! Well done on finishing it on time!

  2. It looks lovely, I bet she loves it! You may well end up with a load of commissions for the rest of the class.

    Have a lovely day, I could definitely do with a transformation hair or otherwise!

  3. Gorgeous. And I'm now dying to see the finished crochet wrap. Hurry up :-)

  4. Adorable! If I ever get a minute I must make one to match my daughters kilt (she learns highland dancing rather than ballet!).

  5. Your little girl looks lovely in her new ballet cardi. Thanks for the heads up on the yarn, I itch like mad if I wear wool. Hope you enjoy your transformation.
