Flamingos and old FO's

This weekend, my seven-year-old niece Jane came to visit us. She's one of the recipients of the dresses in last month's posts. We travelled all over Boston, and saw Quincy Market, Faneuil Hall, the Granary Burying Grounds, the Boston Common, the Boston Public Garden (and Swan Boats, and Make Way for Ducklings statue), and Ben and Jerry's ice cream store.

Of course, there was also time for craftiness. This is Jane in the Paper Source store in Cambridge, where we bought supplies (in her shopping bag) for making a photo album of her trip. She is wearing a tank top I knit for her over a year ago.

You might also be able to see the flamingos on her pants ... those were a gift to match the tank top, but they are getting a little small! So, we stopped in at Marshalls and bought a pair of lime green pants with a pink belt, and I'm going to knit a shirt to match. Probably a raglan style tshirt, but I'm also entertaining the idea of something with a collar and a split neckline. I'm going to try to find some pink and lime yarns to match the pants.
