Nathaniel's Prototype

It was only a matter of time really before he joined his sisters in having all the first runs of good ideas, affectionately called 'prototypes' by Simon. Elizabeth and Francesca have an array of mismatched, cobbled together first attempts at projects and they treasure them so. Very flattering!! Am sure they'll get wise soon and start demanding 'proper' ones!!

So here it is!
Is it Blue Trousers with a check cuff.......

or is it check trousers with a blue cuff?

It's the same pair of trousers inside out!!

Thought it would save work; by having two pairs inside one another there are less raw edges to deal with which is always good! And you get two looks for the price of one, or when you end up wearing the lunch you can take your trousers off, turn them inside out and have a new clean pair. Genius. Am sure I'm not the first person to have thought of this but am quite pleased with the end result. There will be a photo of him wearing them soon.

I also made some beautiful daisy print dungarees in sunshine yellow colours but my girls are too big to model them so am off to borrow a small girl tomorrow, pics will follow.

Early to bed with my knitting tonight, very, very tired!
