It is always nice to walk home from work with a Hitty in my pocket…Hatty wore her favourite blackberry-patterned dress, and pleated pinafore, but didn’t bring a wrap because it was a lovely sunny day when we left for work.
There are neverendingly interesting things to see, and discover…we thought the blossom trees were finished, but today we found a street with pink petalled trees.
In Victoria, people sometimes leave useful things in boxes on the sidewalks…we found this one about ten minutes from the Hitty cupboard.
…we couldn’t believe what was inside!
We found a number of sparkly, low-cut gowns for a well-endowed plastic doll, which we left behind…but also this amazing hand-knit Aran sweater outfit!
Hatty says the clothes go perfectly with her blackberry dress because it has blackberry-stitch pattern all over it! It also has honeycomb, and cable stitches on the front of the jumper and the matching knitted skirt (not shown), and moss-stitch for the hat (and a marvellous huge pompom on top). We both agreed that the best part of the outfit is the pair of blackberry-patterned socks!
The human feels they are slightly too big for Hatty as the jumper goes down to her knees and the socks are as long as her entire leg, but Hatty says that’s nonsense! She thinks they are perfect the way they are – and we found them at the perfect moment because it suddenly started to rain!
