Halloween was a good 6 months ago but I wanted to share my daughter’s Alice in Wonderland costume that she had this past year. I drafted the pattern myself and used plain broadcloth for the dress. The apron was like wise self drafted with the same materials. I had been inspired by Pinterest work this one and created a white rabbit hat and vest and large pocket watch for my son so we had a coordinating costume set this year.
An odd sideways blocking photo, but I never mentioned it here so I thought I should documentit. I seem to knit a shawl immediately after having a newborn and this was the result of baby #2. It’s the Stars in the Twilight shawl so perfect for my muddled tired yet itchy fingers to work on. It worked up very quickly in my spare time and was a relaxing project. I can’t remember for the life of me what the yarn was called, the ball band was long gone but I did pick it up in a cute little yarn shop in Colorado Springs around 6 years ago during a visit to see my sister.
