I'm yarning along with Ginny and the crew at Small Things again this week- come and join the fun!
Little Lounger's Pattern in bulky weight yarn. I did the newborn size in malabrigo chunky again but this pair came out much better! It really helps when you read the pattern correctly! The first pair are perfectly serviceable but the rise is way too long to fit a normal size newborn. I always find that too big is better than too small so they can be used but the fit isn't going to be the best. This time despite some frogging because initially I forgot to size up my needles when I finished the waistband I got the rise just right and amazingly they fit SO much better! Baby B graced us with his arrival Sunday morning at 5:40 am weighing in at 8lbs 9oz so he made a very nice model for me. These are some very green longies so I dug around on the Internet until I found someone willing to sell me some grass green giraffe fabric so that I can make a matching shirt. It's going to be super cute!
Happy Knitting and Reading!
