Needles and stuff

As previously mentioned I made a skort for Nienna. I didn't have a pattern so made it as best I could. It was a good opportunity to do something with the overlocker as I hadn't had a chance to use it since kindly being donated it from my friend Shannon. I am pretty pleased with the outcome although I think the tension on one of the needles could have been tighter. I have also done a little wrap skirt but not finished yet.

The knitting is a vest for me using Anchor magicline cotton. pattern is Broken Rib Tank and pretty easy to knit. If I do it again though I will convert it to knit in the round. From what I can see front and back are done flat and then joined for the yoke.


 

 



Kids and I have been making decorations to give to various teachers etc These are a couple that Nienna did with my help. Have some lovely felt ones too and will get some pics of those soon.
 


Couldn't resist this one when I went to check on kids at my bed time last night. nienna insists on sleeping with a head band over her eyes LOL She truly is a freak.
