I May Need a Bag Intervention

I finished another pair of socks, plain 60 stitches on 2.5mm needles knit magic loop. The yarn is Lana Grossa Solo Cotone. I really like the yarn, it knits up well and it lovely to wear, I’m not as impressed with the colours of this one though. 418 more words

Little, but not bitty, shoes

My daughter wears an AFO brace on her left foot, and even with the brace that foot is smaller than her right. But the brace takes up so much height, it’s not possible to wear shoes that fit the length of her foot, they’d never do up. 755 more words

My second foray into the Dreaded was pants. Because I need pants in a bad way, and I’m a totally different shape now than when I did this 12 years ago. 755 more words
