The child in the park
She had skin the color of cafe au lait, and was wearing a striped tee shirt and cargo pants, with a newsboy hat pulled on over dark brown hair caught up in long braids. She made quite an impression on me as I rode by her & Dad on my bicycle.
So here is Daisy, my tribute to this lovely, unknown child in the park. I used the Yun Shu pattern, freely available on Ravelry. I used Patons Astra in Medium Tan for her skin, and Knit Picks Palette in Grizzly along with a laceweight mohair in dark brown, held together, for her hair. Her outfit is crocheted with size 3 crochet cotton.
And we did go to the park! One of our State Parks, Summit Lake, on the eastern side of the state.
