|I told Lilly that if the peach one was too girly she should re-gift it.|
I made them using this pattern from Ravelry. The pattern calls for you to use the yarn doubled throughout, so for the one of the left I used two strands of a variegated cotton I had laying around and for the one on the right I used the white yarn from the boy's hats and the leftover denim colored cotton from my nook case. I think they turned out pretty nicely. I accidentally put the buttons on different sides of the work, but I don't think it makes much difference. For the peachy one, I also decreased the strap width by two more stitches before I knitted it to length, as the strap on the denim one seemed wider than necessary. I threw them both in a flat rate box Thursday and sent them off to Lilly. I hope she likes them!
|Hardly a perfect specimen of knitting, but I still like it.|
