Snow pants

Today was supposed to be back to work and school, but we had a light dusting of snow and subzero temperatures, so it was canceled. Tomorrow, too. I must admit that it's pretty nice to have extra time off at the end of a vacation, but I will be bummed at the loss of those random extra days off that our school district has every month. They start taking them away as soon as you miss one snow day, which I think is a bit harsh.

And now I have spent an unbelievable amount of time trying to get this picture to work, so I don't have much time left to write stuff. Here we go:

My snow pants! I used this tutorial from Sew Can Do, and I also made matching mittens, also from that site, to go with them. They're not pictured, as I just finished them tonight and they're not pretty enough to photograph anyway. I have not added suspenders. I'm going to try not to because they don't sound that cute to me. I might add supplemental elastic in the back if they really won't stay up. They did turn out too large in the waist--I was allowing for growth and wearing over jeans, but I got a little carried away.

(I also just cut her hair, but only in the back so you can't tell, plus it's still a little damp. It looks pretty good for a random whim though--it was getting a bit wild.)

I made both her and M a balaclava (you will have maybe have seen his on facebook today) for Christmas so she should be ready for playing in the snow if it ever gets around to snowing. It's -2 or something right now. It's supposed to be 55 on Friday. Weather is weird. She wants a "snow shirt" too, but you really have to draw the line somewhere, right? :)

Off to bed, before I turn into a pumpkin!
