A dedicated dance student since she was wee high, Miranda now takes five dance classes a week and has found a world that fits her like a glove (or should I say leg warmer?). I found some Lion Brand in my stash from my very early days of knitting, I should add, and since she'll be pulling these on and off and stuffing them into her dance bag, I decided that a machine-washable acrylic would be perfect for her needs.
We both love stripes and so I'm knitting these with a dark purple and a lavender. The pattern is purely from my head and hands, but if they turn out as I hope, I'll make sure to jot down the instructions. It actually feels really nice to cast on a new but small project. It's like sorbet -- a palate cleanser -- as I move on from the last couple of weeks.
