Boy's skates...girl's skates

Skates are expensive! So when one sibling grows out of his skates, and his younger sister could use them (cause she's complaining her skates are too tight)...well, girls can wear black skates. Of course, there's a relatively easy fix for black skates. Boot covers!

Pretty pretty boot covers! They go with her pretty dress. So here you go, my first sewing from the new house. The dress was mostly done, but I had to alter the neck line (it was coming up too high) and finish the elastic in the legs.

On the Needles

I decided it was time to start knitting again. There's still plenty of unpacking to do...but I need to unwind.

So, I went looking for the socks I had cast on during our drive to VA...but couldn't find them. So I cast on something new. You'll just have to wait and see what this will be.

The yarn is Lion Brand fishermen's Wool, Natural Brown. Casted is 68 st on size 6 circular, 2k/2p ribbing.
