Better pictures of the whole costume can be seen on her own blog.
Too bad she's too young for a candy treat. She did get a yummy Farley's biscuit though.
The bib she is wearing is 47 years old, it was mine when I was a baby.

The buttons DO match, the light is just reflecting on the top one in this picture. This scarf was created using Carol Wulster's interactive pattern available free at Knitting Software. The yarn is some of the Classic Elite Yarns - Desert, that I won in Carrie's blog
Here's a little close-up of a modification I am doing. I'm adding beads to the side and end edges. They are the "oil slick" colour, I think referred to as "dark aurora borealis", and they match the glitter in the handspun perfectly.
Also, instead of the "bind off loosely in knit" I'm using a great bind-off I learned when doing the Swallowtail Shawl. It makes for a very stretchy yet tidy edge.
K2, *transfer the 2 stitches on the right needle back to the left needle and then K2tog through the back loop. K1 and repeat from* around.
That little packet on the top right? That WAS a package of Ferrero Rocher. Was. We'll just flip that little puppy over so that we can't see the calorie count, shall we? Good thing I actually had the camera out before I opened the box or we would have no photo of the yummies.
Then there was the yarn of course. As lovely as promised and full of potential. I have a project in mind but it will have to wait while I finish up the Honeybee Stole. Deadlines first I'm afraid.
Look what else Carrie included, all wrapped pretty with a bow ---
And if that wasn't enough to put a skip in my step and a smile on my face I also got word today that I won Rosemary's blog contest too. One of her beautiful shawl sticks is on it's way to me --- accompanied by one of her beautiful pins I just couldn't resist buying. ;-)
I'm not cheating.
