“The Violets, cowslips, and the Primroses — Bear to my closet…” Queen from Cymbeline, Act 1, sc 1 This is the violets that smell good and that nearly put you asleep with their sweet scent that I wanted to create. With purple toe, heel and cuff, these socks are like feet dancing in the violet field. The lace is the feminine touch like a secret love for your feet.

I am Ludivine Rose, the designer behind 'Dream Little Doll' , now 'Rose et balles de laine'
Between Canada and France, my inspiration is my own experience as a woman and as a mother. I knit since a long time , and this passion turned to be my real work now
I do love to knit for my two kids and make them something special for all seasons but I love to knit great pieces for me too....
I think Knitting must be simple to be realized by everybody...that is why I make simple patterns... most of them are just written without grids...to make them easy to follow! Welcome in my world and have fun to knit my designs!
Fell free to contact me ;) And have a great Moment!
