A Quiet Weekend

Miss Bug headed to her dad’s for the weekend last night. I spent the evening finishing up my creepy basement clean out project so that I could get the car in the garage. While the project is done, I still need a trip to the dump. But, it’s snowing today and Mr. Ink has to work so the trip to the dump has to wait for another weekend.

I worked hard to finish the basement project yesterday so that I could devote my time today to knitting Bug’s Christmas gifts. Being that she is gone, I don’t have to hide them. So I am just working as fast as I can on them.

I found an etsy shop that sold some stockings for American Girl dolls, and I purchased 3 pairs as gifts. This is fabulous since right now, Julie’s only stockings are red. I grabbed grey stockings and white stockings. Then, on a whim, I decided to also get a pair of stockings with bright peace signs on them. They were too cute to resist.

Then, I took some leftover handspun of Marja’s and knit a 3 tiered skirt. It matches the fabulous stockings perfectly, so I am quite excited about it. And, it was a quick knit!

I have more of that yarn, so I am not entirely positive I am done with that colorway yet. So cute!

  1. If I had been more into knitting when I was 8 I would have made so many outfits for my Kirstin doll. As it was, she wore a lot of togas.
