Just trying to get ideas percolating- There dosen't seem to me much in the way of images before 3-6 yrs old and in most of that they seem to be wearing just smaller versions of their parent's style. http://www.larsdatter.com/children-renaissance.htm

I may need to see if I can trade or bribe any of my knitting friends for any or a set of these:
•Infant's knitted sock, vest and mitten (mid-16th century?). Baby clothes knitted in soft white wool; the mitten has a contrasting band, probably of naturally black sheep's wool.

Saturday was supporting a friend & sewing day. We hung out, had much girl talk and I managed to get the back portion of my green Venetian cartridge pleated. Now I just have to finish the front portion (which being side back laced is three times the amount of fabric as the back). I also need to get the sleeves sorted out still and I will be well on my way! I need a new gown. I also need to figure out the neckline on my camica. It's buggered up and I just hate ripping out hand stitching.

We also played some cheapass games TM I had never played before and had oodles of fun. There should be more game nights!! Perhaps Fridays when there are no events? I'm still missing the D&D, or Call of Cthulu sessions, but perhaps sometime this winter a group will present itself (or I'll offer my place to those more skilled at running such things as I would like to play but I'm not sure if I'm up to DM'ing).

Sunday I went to watch another friend play Hockey, and cheer her on. She plays in a co-ed league and even though she's likely the smallest person I saw on the ice she definitely held her own. There were some issues with the other team's sportsmanship, and the ref's failure to notice, but definitely worth going to support a friend. They have to play this team again next week, so if I'm able I'm going to try to get as many people as possibel to come along with.
