Yesterday L turned 6! But today she was invited by her 3-days-junger best friend Gaia. We were a bit in a hurry to leave for her birthday party due to a discussion of mother and daughter about choosing cloths. I wished her to wear her new checkered dress, but L had problems with the waist width. Very quickly solved this (during my morning coffee) by crocheting a chain.
To achieve the desired color with available materials, a thick dark pink and a thin red thread were mixed. Mmmm, pink with a touch of red.
