Trouble with Trebles

This blog is to keep track of my knitting, other craft projects, and the weird bits of life that don't fit anywhere else.

Let's Get Physical

I think I posted about this project back when I did it in 2009, but I never posted photos of little RJ in the full glory of her costume. Back in May of 2009, RJ's teacher sent home a list of necessary items for their spring show. This included a pair of legwarmers. I'm sure most of you have not tried to buy legwarmers for a toddler, but I can assure you they are not that easy to find. Of course, the knitter in me decided on the spot to make them. I used some pink TLC Cara Mia from my stash that someone gave me, and I managed to get them finished in time. Here is a close-up of them:
And here is a somewhat blurry photo of RJ during her performance. Yes, you guessed it; they were dancing to "Let's Get Physical" by Olivia Newton-John. I don't even want to discuss the odd nature of the song choice for two-year-olds, but I will say they did all look very cute. The biggest issue was that the song seemed to go on forever (why wouldn't you just use a shorter version for kids this young?) and the show was scheduled right in the middle of the usual school naptime, so they all looked tired. RJ was a real trouper though, and did a great job!

Welcome Back! I remember those days of not having time to breathe. RJ looks like she's still cute as a button, and her leg warmers are darling.

RJ looks so cute! That was an odd choice of song...

So cute!

Strange song for kids...but I remember when I was 12 and at daycamp, our counsellors had us do a dance number for the whole camp/parents to Like a Virgin.
