Pretending Winter


The other day my four year old decided to "pretend winter"
with her winter coat and my drawer of hand knits.
It was all so cute and uncoordinated that I had to snap some pictures.

Playing Winter 1

Here she is wearing some of the knits that I made awhile back now. I forgot I had some of these items! 
I'm thinking that the Laurel beret looks way cuter on her than it ever did on me.

Playing Winter 2

She wasn't the only one who was ready for winter weather though...

Dollies in "Winter Hats"

These dollies were quite cozy in my knitted hats.


Here is the full "Pretending Winter" ensemble. Doesn't everyone look so overheated happy and warm....

The Whole Winter Pretending Package

...in the 90 degree summer heat?

She is way too cute! That reminds me of the time my little girl pulled 13 pairs of my undies over her head. Why? Why not! LOL

Your daughter is quite the dolly herself, and looks so lovely in her handknits. She's got a delightful imagination to have her dollys prepared for the "weather" too. Thanks for sharing the smiles!

Your daughter's adorable! I love all those handknits.

Kathy said...

Oh, what a great day of dressup! Perhaps it will bring the knitter's weather sooner?

frillbow said...

lol! looking real toasty over there!

Renee said...

Did she want to watch a winter or Christmas movie too? My kids used to do that when they had pretend winter days. Loved those! We'd even bake Christmas cookies. lol

Maryse said...

Gorgeous moments! Love!

Lucy said...

Alana, your daughter is a beauty! And how cute the big gloves look on her! LOL

Melissa said...

That is so cute! Makes me want to knit a pair of mittens and wintery stuff!

This "pretending winter" must be going around; my kids haven't dug out any of the winter knits, but the 2 of them were building imaginary snowmen and having imaginary snowball battles inside yesterday. I love the dolls in the little hat cocoons!

amandajean said...

also wanted to say thanks a bunch for the leg warmies pattern. i just made a pair last week and i squealed over them a bunch. so fun and cute! thanks for sharing the free pattern. (i linked up to it today.) it's much appreciated!
