the little gloves


i knitted these little white rabbit wrist-ees. as soon as i saw the film i couldnt help myself. i made up a knitting pattern too... would you like it? ive posted it over on my *knitting blog* ...its free ♥

in theme i found this old set of alice books at kempton last week.

they are pretty tiny... they have gold pages and really nice illustrations.

ive been meaning to post them ♥ but ive been lost in a book of ships.

and then i fell down in a patch of violets.

Lovely lovely! Really adore your cute little rabbit toy, it's oh so sweet <3

Ps
Sadly I do not knit, have tried to learn many many times but still can't, however that gives me all the more reason to admire your wonderful work :)

Oh, they are so sweet! And the books...how lucky you are - now that is indeed serendipity finding such treasures amidst the 'Alice' madness x

I am going to check the pattern, I hope it's simple enough so I can do it!
You live in a world that I would so much like to see myself!

thanks yall!
i got the books from a lady at a flea market.
she didnt really seem to know about all of the
alice buzz.. i actually got them to sell.. then
decided to keep....eek ♥
they arent really all that old.. they are from 1931..
i have another copy though that has stamped illustrations on every single page..its really old.. but i dont know how old because it doesnt have a date anywhere!!.... its really funny though because alice is playing golf on the spine! and then on the cover she is playing tennis! strange!!!! i darent do another alice post though its so overkill isnt it!!!

I'll try to be different, (even though I do agree with everyone else about your beautiful books and darling gloves), and I'll say I love your rabbit.

Lovely post, Stephanie. The little gloves are sweet, they look like Angora wool... So very soft and warm!;)
Is this your white rabbit?
How many little creatures do you have at home?
The old Alice books look amazing with real leather and gold binding!
