I had enough of the yarn used for Mermaids gloves left to knit hubby a pair of man gloves as well. This time held double with some purple Drops alpaca.
Onward with other things... such as sewing... After trying on my dress, it turns out to be too WIDE in the waist, so there's some work to be done there... And Mermaid's coat is coming on leaps and bounds. I finished off the pockets yesterday, sewed on buttons and sewed the sleeves and collar. The sleeves can be put in next, then it's time for lining!
And one more of Mermaid. We enjoyed a fun visit from Monique and here daughter on Sunday, and the moms were kept very busy, as they wanted to 'make stuff'... The stuff turned out to be a strapless dress.
And once the sewing machine is out, these little men just come out as well... Just to get us into the holiday spirit...
