I'm yarning along with Ginny and co. again this week over at Small Things. Come and join the fun...
Wonderpants pattern. These are in a size small/medium. I ended up knitting these on a size 6 to get gauge- apparently I knit a tad loose... These are a boyish set of longies to go with the owlie milo I made last year- that way I have gifts ready for all those friends of mine who aren't finding out the gender of their babies. I really like how these are coming out although I do find the legs to be a tad wide for my tastes. Next time I think I'll have to decrease the width a bit more but this pattern definitely has an interesting crotch gusset. We'll have to see how it works out in real life. I keep having this problem with pooling of my color in the crotch area though. It doesn't seem to matter which pattern I knit I always get some nice pooling right in the wet zone! I used malabrigo worsted for these b/c it is so nice and soft. Rav details here.
Next up is a Fae Folk hat and some Ruru mitts also in malabrigo worsted for a Diva swap. I'm doing some knitting and getting some new diapers in return since our stash is in serious need of refreshing. Score!
I am doing some reading but nothing that is exciting or interesting enough to share. We've mostly been reading a bunch of sheep books. I will hopefully have some fun reading to share next week though. Along that same vein though I am planning on participating in the Knitting and Crocheting Blog Week next week. I was planning on working on the topics ahead of time but that hasn't happened yet so we'll see how many days I actually get my stuff together and post! It's a personal challenge anyway.
Happy Knitting and Reading!
