The bottom of the skirt will have more colorwork and I may skip the underskirt entirely. A single layer is just so much less bulky.
Cute!!

Then I plan on CO a cowl for moi with some lovely merino/silk .


Oh and I think that interlock and spots are the go to for many peeps now with the economy and such.....I just see so many things sitting in lots of HC and Etsy shops....especially variegated yarns....seems that solids/semisolids are in. WDYT?
Awww....baby feet. So precious. Oh and the yarn is nice too. Lol.

First is some jungle gym shortalls. I'm working on the cargo pockets right now. The buttons just came in today! The big buttons will go on blue pockets.



And I got a custom order last week and I just started on the soaker today. It's going to have a dragon on the back. I have been knitting so much lately that my crochet hook feels foreign to me.

Oh.My. Those are TDF!

Those are gorgeous Mindy. You are crazy though, I wouldn't be wearing those in 90 weather!

AFM here was my mother's day project.



My new colorways for June, Black Swan and White Swan. These are going to Mindy's house to become some handspun squishy yarn. Alright, gotta go finish up an I-cord and do school with the boys.

that was my initial thought too... until Lynne pointed out the needle size which is 20/4 on size 6 so I have NO issues with that.. light and drapey..
no way would I do finger with needles smaller than a 5 or a 4.

I just cant decide on a color to do.

Thank you! And that colorway is beautiful! Especially the White Swan! I bet they will be gorgeous after being spun!

Thank you! Your stuff is nice too! I checked out your fb.


The shortalls are done. (in my avi) I'm plugging away at the soaker now. I will post a WIP tomorrow. I got a girly set of buttons along with the frog/toadstool ones. I can't wait to finish up this custom and get started on the next plan I have in my head. The buttons are "love birds on a swing" and are SO cute!

Those are so cute Carolyn, I'm so tempted to make similar for Pi now that I've seen those! I'm just not sure I'm brave enough to attempt 4T
