    Okara42 commented on the article Woodlands: 7 Whimsical Children's Patterns

    Agreed. I have grandsons. While these are darling patterns neither of the boys shows any desire to wear frilly shorts. They play soccer, climb trees, jump in the mud, pretend to be transformers or …

    Oh, I like these! Loose and comfy – the cardy and pullover especially. Not too thrilled with that one-armed thing though. Or maybe it’s just the photograph. Make’s the poor model look like she’s hi…

    These are really sweet! And most can be worn elsewhere in the summer. I’m thinking Vancouver jazz festival, the Pride parade, fireworks night and strolling along the seawall at sunset. The bikini t…
