Summer Knitting and Custom Trainers

Now that the weather is absolutely beautiful here, I have been getting together some shorties for Jocelyn. She wasn't too keen on the idea of wearing shorts at first and kept trying to pull them down, but she has gotten used to it.

This first pair is Ellyl by Mosaic Moon on Mountain Meadow Ramboulliet. I really love the feel of this yarn. It is a bit smoother and softer than cestari, but it seems to be just as sturdy. It was really nice to knit with.

This one is Blackberry Fairy by Family Pendragon on Cestari Superfine.  I couldn't wait to knit these up.  I adore the colorway!

I actually finished this bolero a couple of weeks ago, but forgot to post pictures. So her it is! It is Selah's Caramel Heart on Corriedale.   I had to bribe my husband to take some pics for me.  If it looks like gorgeous weather, that is because it has been in the 70s and 80s :)

Thanks to the little ones actually playing nicely together in my sewing room, I was able to finish up this custom this morning.  They are for a really nice mama in Canada.  She requested that I put elastic in the waist for her daughter and here they are!
