Clara in Clara

Three and a half years ago, I wrote a post entitled, "Elise in Clara".  How fun to follow up with "Clara in  Clara".

As you can tell, Clara has been enjoying her turn in handknit hand-me-downs, but I am thinking I will have to knit her her own "Clara Dress", not just because of the name, but because it is about my favorite little knit dress ever.  I'm thinking something for winter, maybe in a hand dyed grey yarn?

And because it's so fun to compare and contrast, here's Elise back in January of 2011: 

Oh, how time gets away from us.

Read more about the project on the original post.

  1. What a cute baby!! The dress is great also.

  2. You know, naming you child after knitting patterns?.... I know you like to knit, but...... :P!!! Ha! Just kidding. She is so adorable, I'm enjoying the comparisons to Elise - Clara has so much hair!

  3. Just beautiful! She has gorgeous eyes..... and yes, the dress is very nice too!!!

  4. Clara looks like a sharp young lady; those eyes aren't missing anything! With her warmer coloring, fall colors will look well on her. I could see this little dress in a light rust, or a dark mustard color for her.
