Red, White and Pink

Welcome to my stop on Sewing by Ti's Red, White and Pink blog tour.



February - Valentines' month. The month of all things, pink and red and white, and roses and chocolates.  And this precious girl's birthday.



Soon our Miss 6 will be a Miss 7 (going on 17). I'm not sure how the 'birthday dress' trend started with this one. The first I remember was when she turned 4. The prospect of a Rainbow themed party was just too good an opportunity to miss. I made her a Peppermint Swirl Dress*, using solid poplins to make a rainbow. The year after was her Shopkins Dress (a La Tulipe in shopkins fabric that she still tries to wear). Last year was the Gingerbread Dress (base pattern was the Gabriella Fae by Sis Boom).  This year she isn't having a party (although she's still busy planning all sorts of activities) so without a theme to work with, I suggested red, white and pink, to work in with the blog tour, using the pattern where it all began - the Peppermint Swirl

Jaywalking

They're done!

I'm really happy with how they turned out. The sock yarn I chose striped up nicely. The really freaky bit is that - totally by chance - I managed to just about line up the stripes. I could have undone the cast on of the second, and adjusted the tail length so they both had a little red around the top, but that would just be too anal.


Vital stats:
Pattern: Jaywalker by Grumperina
Needles: 2.5mm circulars (worked on 2)
Yarn: Heirloom Jigsaw 4 ply

  1. Your socks look great! I like the zig-zag affect of the pattern. If I could motivate myself to knit more socks I might give that pattern a go!
