My newest little one is named Lillian… such an old fashioned kind of name, but it really seemed to fit her. When I was growing up, the people down the street had a housekeeper named Lillian, and she was truly the sweetest lady. I crocheted this tiny little sweater months ago and was waiting for someone pale and dainty to wear it. When I crochet this small I use an antique German hook that roughly corresponds to a .5mm modern hook. I also managed to get just a bit of ribbon embroidery on there. Two itty-bitty little roses, each made from a single French Knot, with little leaf stitches. I’ve used 2 mm silk ribbons in soft pastel shades.
