Adelaide Is Back

My favorite baby knitwear model, Adelaide, is back and just as cute as ever!
She came over today to model some more 6 month size trunk show samples.
I just love seeing how these knits look on little ones like her.

Adelaide In Very Cherry

The photo shoot started out well with Adelaide happily modeling the Very Cherry dress.
She is cute and smiley but very wiggly. This is one of the only shots I got of her that wasn't blurry.
She is constantly wanting to crawl away. I have a new found appreciation for baby photographers.
It is not easy.

Her Mom had a great idea in giving her some yarn to play with.
This kept her occupied so that I could successfully shoot some pictures of her in the
coordinating Playful Stripes sweater.

Seeing handknits layered over handknits makes me very happy.

Things turned a little sour when we tried to take some pictures outside sans the ball of yarn.
She was so disappointed. And I felt bad.

Her mom calls this the "old man face".
(No offense to any old men who may be reading this blog.)

Old Man face

It's so pathetic isn't it? I just couldn't live with the guilt.
That tantalizing ball of yarn was returned and Adelaide discovered
that it is not just fun to play with. Yarn also tastes good.

Yarn is good

Really good.

Yarn is REALLY good!

I have to tell you, I am really quite enamored with this tiny Playful Stripes sweater.
It was knit for me by Andrea from the Life on Laffer blog and the color combination and tininess of it is just too cute.
This may be my favorite of all the children's designs, I don't know. I just like how versatile this sweater is.
Adelaide's mom who is a non knitter remarked how well the sweater would go with many different outfits. That is so true.

I never expected this little dress and sweater to go together so well,
but I really think that it makes for a surprisingly cute little outfit.

Thank you again to Adelaide for being such a good sport,
and also to Deirdre who did a fabulous job knitting up the Very Cherry dress for me.

I just love seeing Adelaide photos! And I agree that the colors in the sweater are perfect for a little girl's wardrobe and it looks wonderful with the dress. I wish I had been a knitter when my daughter was little. Sigh...

I'm in love with the little sweater, too. I'm also in love with the name Adelaide- one of my top three girl names :)

How cute is SHE?! That dress is absolutely to die for.

Sue said...

Oh Miss Adelaide is definately a super cute model, and perhaps a knitter in later life judging by her love of yarn. I have to say the items do go together so well and the little cardigan is just adorable!

Kristi said...

she is so adorable!

But where o' where is the boy's knits? :) sigh...

Ariane said...

Hahaha! She made me crack up this morning! Beautiful knits and adorable model!

Denise said...

She is just adorable :) in ALL the photos. Love the ones with they yarn in her mouth, too funny!
I do think the cardi and dress go so well together too because of the red in the cardi no doubt. You see it more when paired with the dress, but it would look great with jeans too.

Your model is adorable and I LOVE the very cherry dress. IF I can get all my Christmas shopping done, I am going to try and knit that dress for my 2 year old to wear Christmas eve.

I want to buy every pattern little Adelaide models. She is the most darling little girl. I love her facial expressions!! TOO CUTE!

Liz said...

Wow. Amazingly darling sweater...I am so in love! I only wish I had someone to knit it for my own sweet little girl as my little gal prevents me from spending too much time knitting (not to mention that I am stuck in the scarf stage of my knitting skills).

Hi I see that you have a lot of experience knitting and I was wondering if you have any ideas on a project I'm working on, it's a university project that involves knitting tubes. But we keep getting creases in the tube and it doesn't look very nice, do you have any idea of what we could do?

Gorgeous! I made one for my daughter Lily a wee while back in a beautiful sea-foam green. I think I'll try this for a friend of mine expecting a baby soon.
