Nothing But Knit theme sewn by Skirt Fixation. Fun children's clothing event!Dawg and A-Kat muttered insults at the large people for a while, but were finally relegated to sitting on the steps watching.

Nothing But Knit theme sewn by Skirt Fixation. Fun children's clothing event!“It’s worse when you hafta watch ‘em play.” A-Kat said, scowling.

Nothing But Knit theme sewn by Skirt Fixation. Fun children's clothing event!“Big dumb dudes.” Dawg muttered, thinking that someday he’d be better than all of them.

Nothing But Knit theme sewn by Skirt Fixation. Fun children's clothing event!“Ball!” Baby chuckled. If he had his special ball he’d be happy, no matter if he was on a basketball court or not.

Finally the large people were done with their game and the little street urchins could reclaim their territory.

“Only if I get to be Larry Bird,” she answered.
“Whatever!” Dawg replied, “I’ll be Michael Jordan, he’s better anyway! Who wants to be The Bird?”

So they had a rather heated game that also included Baby whenever his special ball rolled into their court.

Two things inspired this photo essay.  Week 1 of Project Run & Play begins today with the theme: Nothing But Knit.  All the street urchin’s clothing is made from knit fabrics.  The name of the theme, Nothing But Knit, took me back to the 90s and the Nothing But Net Superbowl ad campaign.   The second part of the photoshoot reflects those two icons on the court.  This photo inspired the first part of the photoshoot.   A-Kat’s hair fashion sense is inspired by this DJ.

Outfit summaries only today, complete reviews and many more photos coming tomorrow and Wednesday.
