Some knitting progress

 One sock done - at last. It is a bit hard to photograph my own foot/leg. I did it quite long - the hem at the top is a bit saggy - I may need to add some elastic. I really want to get the second one done now so I can move on - these have gone on for too long.
The Vivian hoodie is nearer to completion - just need to get a zip....and as it is summer here, most of the time, then there doesn't seem too much rush

...and then there were two

Buttons added to the first...

and the second is now complete. There are pockets but they haven't photographed well.

As I hardly sew anything I am very pleased with these. Cute labels huh?

and now for something completely different...

This is the first sewing I've done for a long time. I am making two dresses for my niece's daughters -
here is the first. Just need some buttons and buttonholes to finish.
It's not the best of photos - I'll try again when I finish it properly - the bottom is gathered and there are side pockets. I'll also try to get photos of it modelled - if it fits....

New Year

Happy New Year. I've been away 2 weeks and didn't get a lot of knitting done. I finished a 3rd pair of the Betsy mitts and started on the sleeves of Vivian
You can't tell much from the photo but they are quite long and flare out at the wrists.
I love long sleeves so these should tick that box nicely.
