This pattern is a mixture of amazingly sweet and down-to-earth at the same time. The colorwork dragonflies (I KNOW!) are the sweet, and the lovely neutral shades of Zealana's Kiwi Fingering are the down-to-earth. So precious!
Have you tried knitting wit Zealana yarns yet? Kiwi is a wonderful blend of 40% New Zealand Merino, 30% organic cotton, and 30% brushtail possum. This yarn is surprisingly soft but still has the light and sturdy feeling of cotton.
The chart for this pattern, while large, is not too complex (honest!). I also love that Julia included instructions for non-puffed sleeves in case you can't handle that much cuteness in one garment. Our little model, Ruby, wore this very well over her polka dot chambray dress.
Since the collection launched last week I've been brainstorming which colors to use for my own Libelle. While D or N won't sport this blouse, I do have a 3 year old niece who could use some hand knits in her life.
