Longies: Some progress!

So, today I'm up for a nice, light, knitting post. ;o) I've been working on some more custom longies for another mama, and here's where they stand (er, lay):

These are the prototype for my top-down longies pattern, which should be done by the end of next week. (It's a conservative estimate, since we'll be gone all weekend, and I'll be completely offline for that time.)

Here's a close-up of the crotch gusset, take #2:

This one has worked out much better than the previous attempts. It's just like the toe of a sock, and since I'm a doofus when it comes to grafting, I had to graft it from the inside (since I couldn't figure out how to graft in knit--just in purl!). But I think it looks pretty darn good, don't you? And the leg on the left side of the photo comes out from the gusset in a neat fashion, without any ridges or holes.

Have a great weekend, everyone, and I'll see you next week!
