1  wee little kid knits....NOW WITH PATTERN :D in Knitting: Completed Projects by GoatHerder on: May 04, 2005 02:06:48 PM
I didn't have enough yarn for a full sweater and my daughter wanted something out of the purple loopy fuzzy yarn. The aforementioned yarn is a grand total of 13.7yrds. yes folks thats the whole skein for $5.99 ( i didn't buy it, it was a gift). not even enough for a scarf....so I made a little girlie shrug.
But its way darn cute and she loves it.



and the back...

2  My Chillin's Easter getups. not ur avg... in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by GoatHerder on: March 27, 2005 06:56:14 AM
I asked my kiddos what they wanted to wear for Easter, since I was fresh out of ideas. My son decided he wanted camo pants and a hobbit shirt. Sure why not, says I, that'll be simple. So here he is complete with coonskin cap:


And my daughter wanted a skirt that 'went way up' when she spins. So I did a simple pink polkadot circle skirt. I decided instead of a regular hem, I'd have a bit of fun with the serger. And what better way to accessorize than with striped tights:


and a detail of the serged hem with decrative silk threads:


They both love their outfits, so that makes me happy!
Thanks for looking!!
