    Do you know how the We Girls tights fit?

    Thanks, Peggy. They are a trio of cuties.
    Gotz have improved the fit of their tights. Katie’s were a poor fit. Too short in the leg, but Mariah’s are perfect. Good point, they do hide the joints well!

    Pam, they look like a little singing group? So cute!

    Those tights are really good quality and fit well. They’re fairly thick, which softens the appearance of the knee joints. Some shoes won’t fit over them, but the Götz brand and Marina’s shoes fit fine.

    I did recognise the tights, Peggy. I love using those tights.
    I haven’t done much knitting lately but I did quickly make another romper/playsuit. It is a very quick knit. This time it was for Amy. Here she is, and also with her friends Rachel and Hannah.

    Pam, you probably recognize her tights from her meet outfit.

    Ann, I like colors together that are close on the color wheel. The shoes were on sale in Marina’s shop, so they started me with the blues, and I had a fat quarter of the blue and green plaid fabric.
    I’m glad you had something you could use in your stash. I know the feeling when you remember something you have that would be perfect and you can’t find it.

    Ginny, you’re so funny! You put some frightening images in my head. You might just as easily go off in the future, with something that enables a starship to go into warp drive!

    Peggy, I love the colours of Mariah’s outfit too – as Pam said, they really suit her. Thanks for explaining ‘warping board’. I was heading off in the direction of mediaeval torture…

    Ann, hope you find that elusive fabric soon.

    A really smart outfit, Peggy. Love the blues and greens together.

    I got row 1 of the first sleeve done last night. Started row 2 so am on my way to getting it done.

    Didn’t find the fabric but found another fabric and a new pattern to test. I’m sure the piece I want will show up eventually.

    Well done, Peggy. Really smart outfit for Mariah. Love the greens and the blues. She is totally co-ordinated from head to toe. Suits her so well.

    Here it is. It will probably take me a few more days to clean up the pattern, add abbreviations, photos and the chart. I need a dark background and good lighting for the photos. I’m not sure what I’ll do at this point, but I’ll be taking more photos. I may want to include the instructions for the skirt. We’ll see.

    Ann, it will be fun to see it. I’ll probably release the pattern as the second version when I finish the one I’m working on. I think we’ve found most of the bugs in it, although the sleeves knit flat are still untested. I will just have to go through it again, line by line, to make sure I switched all the alternate rows to reverse.

    Pam, Mariah looks good, but she was in a rush and didn’t bother to fix her hair.
