I aimed to make the heels and toes red, but I colored outside the lines on the one sock. And also, this is some vintage sock yarn I picked up somewhere, and I think it's a little fragile. I caught the sock unraveling in two red spots, where I joined the red to another color. Or perhaps the socks are already wearing out because Phoebe has worn them almost non-stop?
Phoebe is suddenly so much taller that her pajamas were inches too short at wrists and ankles. When I asked her if she'd like a nightie, her face lit up and she asked if she could wear it that night: I had yet to even search out a pattern and fabric!
But the nightie was fast and easy, and Phoebe has rarely slept in anything else since it came off the sewing machine.
I let her choose a button - she chose a lamb. She's my little lamb! And look at my precious 6-year-old Genevieve in a nightie from the same pattern. Little girls in nighties - so dear.
