Reliving One's Youth
So, this is how I spent my birthday yesterday, doing something I haven't done for far too long! The kids have been asking for ages to go skiing and even though the field is only a couple of hours away, it is something we have never got around to, until now! It was only decided last weekend, that we were going which mean't new ski pants, for me at least. Having made ski pants for Courteney last winter, I knew what I was trying to achieve but decided to make mine a little more roomy.
And the verdict....well, the pants fit comfortably over my running leggings and I did not need the fleece lining because it was warm up there, well as warm as it is going to get on a snow clad mountain! But for next time, and there will be a next time, I think I will alter them and add the lining and leg gussets like Courteney's.
Now, while we are on the topic of ski pants, all of the pants worn by my family in the above pictures, were made from the same goretex haul by yours truly. The male members of the household, including my husband who will be suitably unimpressed by his photo appearing here, are sporting unlined versions. Callum has requested that I also make him some "proper" ones for next time. I could be busy! Just as well the season is over in a couple of weeks and I have all summer to get organised!
