An Easter Greeting to Every Child Who Loves "Alice."


An Easter Greeting to Every Child Who Loves "Alice."
DEAR CHILD,

Please to fancy, if you can, that you are reading a real letter, from a real friend whom you have seen, and whose voice you can seem to yourself to hear wishing you, as I do now with all my heart, a happy Easter.
Lewis Carroll Easter 1876


Maybe Lewis Carroll was the worlds first blogger it certainly sounds like it.
For the last couple of years I have treated myself to a Christmas Day project. Something really special that I anticipate for a couple for weeks before casting on. This year I decided why not give myself the same pleasure for Easter ( a lot less calories than and egg!).
I had queued the pattern Alice by Katya Wilsher a couple of months ago and I thought it would be perfect.

Cheerful, summery and perfect for warm spring weather. From reading the information on her pattern I know she was influenced by Alice's apron.I think you can really seen a modern day Alice wearing this . But, when I think of Alice I think of her in Disney blue. Sirdar Snuggley Baby Bamboo DK was on my list of yarns to try this year and they had what I consider to be the perfect colour. Sailboat 156. It is what Mamie would have called cornflower blue slightly purple reminiscent of Spring and Easter and perfect for a project called Alice.
