Butter and Eggs Lilly
(Cincinnati, Ohio USA)
This outfit was made as part of a knit along on Ravelry. As I always do when knitting, I started to think about the many things the colors remind me of. This time the two shades of yellow made me think not only of real butter and eggs, but of a weed, linaria vulgaris, a snapdragon type plant that grew freely in the barnyard of my grandparents' farm. As many children do, my cousins and I used to make the blossoms "talk" by pinching the sides of the flowers. It's a happy memory of a time past which I think compliments this nostalgic design of a fashion from an earlier time.
Thank you, Malfrid for this wonderful design. So many lovely pieces to make a special outfit.
