a 'small being'...

i do not have any 'small beings' lying around my shed.
i have plenty of 'little critters' and 'large beings' but that would not do.
as luck would have it, 
i found myself a perfectly perfect 'small being' on tuesday,
courtesy of a fine friend and her shed.

Dear wonderful Tif, aka Dottie Angel,
It is so fine to see you enjoying a 'small being' around mossy shed and the gorgeous and darling kerchief/shawl she is sporting is beyond cute! Did your fine friend knit it? Does she have a pattern to share? It would be so nice to find a pattern for such a spiffy kerchief! Do share if you can.
Much enjoyment is had reading your posts. Love, alipyper

What a cutie and what lovely 'makes'.
Chocolate on toast, never tried it but it does sound scrummy, then again I might get hooked too.

Leanda said...

Oh my goodness... she's adorable!! I see she has Dottie Angel aspirations and perfectly dressed for the part too :) (is that a ruffly scarf I see? ;)

owlinalarkworld said...

Such amazing photos. I want to give both of you a hug.

dottie angel said...

oh yes indeedy, a perfectly perfect 'small being' :)

the little crocheted shawl was a gift from my fine friend's friend to her 'small being'. i have no idea where the pattern is from, all i know is, upon seeing it i gasped thee gasp at its fabbiness.
i now wish to wear one too!

yes Leanda, you spy a 'rippley ruffley' collar!

thank you for your lovely comments, i smiled a whole lot whilst reading them. most kind of you indeed :)

she is a cutie. Such beautiful photos. I love nutella on fluffy white bread, yummo. Looking forward to seeing your shop full of goodies. bec x

sarah said...

If one were to join Ravelry and search for the pattern called "calamity jane" by Kirsten Hipsy, you can craft your very own ruffley collar. Unfortunately I know no other way to buy the pattern (it's 4.99 on Ravelry). The yarn for this particular shawl was Mountain Colors Twizzle in an olive colourway, a worsted merino/silk blend. (alas, I am not the knitter of the gem but a friend that happens to know the technical details)

said...

small being is a magical model
and fine friend a very fine photographer
the props are gorgeous too!

would that be nutella? if so, i have a similar weakness. am partial to the green & black's one too (trouble is it's a bit posh and only wants to be spread on artisan bread).
we have a small being here that will only have his snacks served on his 'happy monkey' tray (which was meant to be for nana).

What great photos - I love, love, love your skirt. The small is adorable - as my nan would say "I could eat her up on a jam butty." Can you tell where we are from? The North of England, Blackpool to be exact. I am also a long way from home and I thought I was the only person this side of the Atlantic that says willy nilly. x

What a sweet little person you found! I also am desirous of a shawl. I did quite a few flowers to make a shawl.. then I got boooooored of making them.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Oh my...what a lovely little 'small being' you have found there Tif :o)

She is adorable, from her splendid headscarf to her 'cloggy style' slipper/shoes.. I do miss 'small beings' around my home...

Such beautiful photos Tif..I hope 'small beings' mummy is proud :o)

Have a most splendid day my dear.
Take care,
Donna xx

Carpet Bag Vintage said...

These photos are awesomeness in a big ol box! How adorable!

Claudia Horner said...

This young lady is clearly a kindred spirit! I love everything about her wonderful outfit and inquiring ways, and the photos are simply dear!

dottie angel said...

hurrah hooray sarah! many thanks my dear for the info. you know i am not a member and yet my patterns are up there! most interesting to see, i can only see if someone kindly shows me if they have an account. under 'dottie angel patterns' :)

a great start to the day, a morning cuppa, your kind words and looking towards a bit toast and chocolate spread. i'm not a nutella girl, i'm a cadbury's chocolate spread girl. one jar kindly bought back from old blighty by my man. hence i am no longer a recovering addict, but an addict again :)

some pink flowers... you are so silly, you made me smile :)

delighted to think of a small being, attached to a little happy monkey tray. i'm very attached to mine, i did have two and then i lost one! how can one lose a tray?! i did not take my tray out for a walk, i guess he is playing hide and seek with me within the shed...

happy friday my dears

Kitten's Lost Her Mittens said...

How fantastic that your borrowed small being has such good dottie angel taste!
And where, oh where, did you get your boots? I have a serious case of the wanties.

dottie angel said...

my boots are by Sanita, they are fleecy lined and wooden clog soles. i found them on ebay end of last winter and stored them until this moment. having been on my feet for the past 2 weeks, i think it most true to say, they are the most comfortable winter boots i have ever owned.
i will be highlighting them when i do a little blurb about clogs soon :)

What a peachy small being and her mother for sharing.
