grandpa pants

I made some pants for Aldy out of some of my late father's shirts. I thought it would be a nice use of these shirts, and makes me feel my dad's presence. Plus, the plaids are very masculine and kind of 1950's styled. There just aren't enough good boy clothes, I have to make things myself! I used the side and bottom seams of the shirts (straight bottomed shirts) in the pant design, and made up my own pattern.
my little bruiser...

Some knitting for me -- projects finished up this summer...

My own prayer shawl - knit out of leftovers from various projects I've knit in the past 3 years.

And a shiny scarf out of Louisa Harding Sari Ribbon yarn... will look great during drab winter days.
