Somewhere Over The Rainbow
These little baby pants or longies make me think of that song, I wonder why? I had to fiddle around with an old baby leggings pattern to get the stripes measuring the same, the waistband to have a drawsting and I changed the narrow leg to a bootleg style. A lovely lady who bought one of my hats asked me to make these for her daughter, complete with the embroidered ladybug beetle on the leg. Janelle was giving me her, always honest, opinion of these while they were being made but even she admitted that they were very cute when finished! I swear that girl is my harshest critic but I do value her opinion as she is very artistic and knows what does and doesn't work.
Another Newsgirl Cap, this one made from
Patons Jet, I love the way the variegated Jet works with my caps and being wool and alpaca, very soft. I will be making some from Bendigo Alpaca soon. I am working on some new patterns too, so stay tuned!
The school holidays are almost over, phew! This second week has been a bit trying as they have all been sick, I suppose it is best to get the bugs over and done with before the second term begins. This is always a long, cold term with plenty of colds and flu's doing the rounds. Oh well till next time, happy knitting.
