F.........un with Fireflies

Do you remember trying to catch fireflies when you were a child? As they flittered, glowing in the inky darkness, they were irresistible! In response to a "firefly" challenge, I used pale green french knots against the top of a girl's cropped cardi and small purse crocheted from deep indigo blue yarn. It is designed for girls anywhere from six to twelve, with a 24" to 27" chest measurement. The little purse measures 6" in diameter. I would be perfect to throw on to keep warm in the cool of a summer night, whether she is catching fireflies or on an outing. This set is available in my Etsy shop and could be ordered in almost any color combo you want. It was designed for the weekly theme by Natasha on her Thursday Sweet Treat blog. thanks for the inspiration, Natasha!

cute! I didn't see fireflies for the first time until I was 17, and I understood the desire to chase them! Have you seen the glow in the dark yarns...that would be so cool!
