Hey Look! Knitting content!

Yep. Can you believe it? We spent most of the weekend elsewhere, visiting friends and family (but still sleeping in our own beds--it was wonderful). Somehow, though, I managed to get a little done in odd moments on yet another baby project. Isn't it just too cute?

I'm really pleased with how these are turning out, and hope that the recipient (and her mama) will be just as pleased. (I'm working on the pooling issue that's happening now that I'm up to the hip section--I'll post photos and details when I get it worked out.) It's so fun to knit things for tiny little folks. They go so fast, you get to use fun colors that grown ups don't usually wear, and the yarns are soft, soft, soft.

I'm actually working on a longies pattern of my own, which will be available for free here when it's done. I'm tired of seeing all of the "For home use only" restrictions on patterns, and will have no such stipulation on mine. I'm not out to make money off of them, and even if I was selling patterns, what you make from them is your own--not mine. I'm hoping for some feedback from people who actually knit the pattern, so I can fine tune it, if need be.

So, stay tuned, and hopefully this will work out well. ;o)

Hey, you got a name for that oh, sooo pretty yarn you're using on the longies? I was bummed about missing out on the purewool stuff, and then a young mom came into the shop, and she was gushing about it, AND knitted longies, which she was verrry secretive about... I want to try making some nephew-goodies, if it's as soft as everyone *says*. Put your pattern out here, good woman. I can't wait to see how a "crotch gusset" goes together. Be well. C

It's hand-dyed yarn by Little Trunks of Lemon Tree Lane over at The colorway is Mistletoe.

The pattern is coming . . . ;o)
