She prefers wearing it with her tutu

Carson had her 4th birthday the other day and we partied. In addition to the T-shirt, I gave her a tutu for playing dress-up. She felt these went well together, and even better with her Snow White high-heeled shoes. She is probably correct.

The T-shirt fits all right — as I suspected, it's a little wide. The arms just fit; when she grows a little more, I'll pull out the sleeves and crochet around the armhole and she can wear it as a sleeveless top.

I finished one of my pretty brown Conwys:



I know brown seems like a boring color for a sock, but I wear a lot of brown socks to work. On the days when I can wear a handknit sock, I feel very happy. I'd love to wear nothing but handknit socks to work (that won't actually happen, because some of my shoes are a little too snug to accommodate a handknit, but it's a nice fantasy).

The best part of this sock is the calf shaping. I've never knit a sock with calf shaping before and man does it fit well!



Now I have to cast on for #2...

Carson is right; the T-shirt does look great with the tutu, and those little shoes are perfect :-)

And such nice shaping too. I think we should all have butterfly wings and tutu's. There aren't enough sparkles when you're older.
