I had such a fun time with this one… Lillian

 

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.
