Knitting: Dusty Lavender Sweater Set for Scarlett

I had enough yarn left over from the sweater I made for Audrey that I could make a matching one for Scarlet, and so I had planned to do it, but the project ended up being fast and furious due to a last minute family photo shoot! My in-laws came in town for Scarlett's blessing and earlier this week my mother-in-law called to see what I thought about doing an extended family photo--we haven't had one since I married into the family and I had mentioned something a while back but wasn't planning to have it so soon after having a baby! I decided to set aside my vanity and instead focus on what the girls could wear. Much more fun.

Because of the cooler weather, not only did I need to finish this sweater but I also thought Scarlett needed a matching hat...

...and booties. The sweater is from the Debbie Bliss Special Knits book. The booties are the "Slip Ons" pattern from Zoe Mellor's 50 Baby Bootees to Knit (so many darling patterns in this book!). The hat is from the Bernat Organic Cotton Mommy and Me Book.

And look how beautiful my girls look in their matching outfits! I had to make Audrey a dress too. This is from a pattern I have from my mother's collection. It's Butterick 4676--darling bishop's yoke dresses with or without ruffles.

These gorgeous photos of the girls are by a local photographer, Jennifer Fauset.
