I spent the bulk of today finishing up some knitting

I had started. This outfit is using a pattern I found on Ravelry for soakers. She also includes
a skirt pattern, but I kind of went off on my own after I got started on it.
I really do not think I would do the picot hem again. I have a hard time keeping the stitches even when I am turning the hem up. I finished this skirt and sold it today. If you are on Ravelry, the pattern I used was Li'l Aries Soaker
by Amy O'Holleran. It was a free download. I will probably use it again, but I also found a pattern that I liked and bought. I bought Sheepy Pants and Sheepy Skirt
by Mandie Harrington, who is also on Ravelry. I decided to buy her pattern because I liked the look of her gusset better than the one by Amy. Believe me, though when I tell you I do appreciate the generosity of the designers who spend their time creating and then share their patterns with those of us who have absolutely no idea how to do it ourselves, or maybe we are just to lazy to put out the effort.
I also finished up this pair of tights. It is also a pattern I found on Ravelry. It is by Machelle Salmeen who has a blog called Chopped Tomatoes These are the second pair I have made. I went up a size in my needles this time, but they are still very small. They would fit a newborn baby. They are made from 100% wool. I am contemplating adding a skirt to them too.These longies are made from Amy O'Holleran's pattern also. I found it on Ravelry too. Again, I had some trouble with the gusset. I still think they turned out pretty cute. I do see one thing I need to fix, nah......I will just make the adjustment next time. Like I said, sometimes I can be a bit lazy.
