I have noticed that I have a certain amount of knitter's pride that makes me reluctant to do a garment completely in k2 p2 ribbing. I have periodic fits when I think I should be doing some yarn-over ribbing or some pattern. But when I look at these and other leg warmers, it's clear to me that the look I want is just plain ribbing. I just have to keep reminding myself.
The ballerina has reached a milestone in her dance education. Last week she was fitted for her first pair of pointe shoes. I had never realised what a milestone it was, until all the moms were there with their cameras except me. My cell phone takes okay pictures, so I was able to be a good mommy too and take some pictures.
