Kissing Slippers
Originally uploaded by plainsight.

More Knitting Class fun–one of my middle school students made socks on the knitting machine-and gave them faces–but instead of using them as puppets she’s made them into a pair of slippers, using puff paint to make the bottoms non-skid.

Another student has started making barbie clothes to sell at an upcoming street fair in her neighborhood this summer. Her first ensemble is pictured below.

    It’s amazing how quickly kids pick things up and master them.

    Seeing Barbie in knitwear brings back memories of my mother, grandmother, and great-aunt making clothes galore for my dolls. I had the best-dressed Barbies around–with Aran sweaters, cabled jackets, etc. What fun. Wish I still had them….
