Molly Bear's Picnic Giveaway

Well today is Molly Bear day. Finally her giveaway is up and running, so if you are interested in entering please follow the Facebook link at the top of this page.

Molly Bear is knitted from hand dyed alpaca. Her dress is also made from a very special skein of yarn, mulberry silk. This is the first time I have knitted in silk and I would have to say it was amazing. Such a delight to work with something so luxurious and special.

Her little basket is made from linen and finished with a vintage millinery flower and antique lace and shell buttons. And of course she has a wee china tea set to take to her picnic, perfect for tea and cake under the trees in the woods.

Inside her basket is a tiny doily. I crocheted it from very special vintage cotton, so fine and delicate.

Molly Bear's cloche hat is also made of linen. It is finshed with a beautiful piece of antique lace, a matching 1940's vintage millinery flower and an antique button.

Arrabella's Molly Bear popped over to join the fun, I think she felt she was missing out.

Good luck to all who enter!!!
