Finally took some pictures of the outfits I made in January while I was ill.
I started with knitting a KID-size sweater set using the leftovers from two other sweaters - purple, green, and blue yarn combos. Then decided to make another KID sweater set using a new ball this time - bright mixed colours. Then I made matching tights, T-shirts and jumpers. The outfits are ultimately for my two new KIDs, Paige and Angela, who still haven't been painted. But Lisa and Peach offered to model them for me, so I could see how they looked....
Then I went smaller, knitting a sweater for Tillie, and then an even smaller one for Cinnamon. I decided the two of them finally needed some 'contemporary' clothes, and that included warm sweater sets for when it's cold outside. Both sweater sets are made from the final remnants of previous sweaters. They were a big challenge - especially Cinnamon's tiny sweater - because I had to piece together all the coloured stripes and there were so many loose ends, it looked more like I was making a yarn doll wig than a sweater. It took hours to weave in all the loose yarn ends.
