Brown Shorties

Brown Shorties, originally uploaded by Ladymama.

I finished these on Friday. They took twice as long as they needed to because I was working on them at the beach and missing some of my notes, and then I got mysteriously sore and couldn't knit for a week.

Anyways, they are my first experiment with Patons Merino, which was fine to knit with. We'll see how they wear- not sure what to expect with felting and pilling. It only took one skein on size sevens.

For this pair, I included five short rows. The crotch gusset has about 20 stitches.

I did end up fixing the brown pair so they would be the same size before I mailed these off to Lara. I'm pleased with the results.

I sent my photo to Sara, the pattern designer of the baby pants at Bella Knitting. They put me on the blog!!! How cool is that? They even linked my blog to theirs in the post!

I did end up frogging the brown striped pair and lengthening them so they would be the same size. No problem, and now they're perfect. Off to Hawaii as we speak, and none too soon, as those babies are coming out via c-section in the morning. The pants are for later anyway, but still. Oh, and good thing one pair has a blue stripe, because according to Lara, one of the ways they will distinguish between their identical twins is that one baby will always wear blue, and the other one never will. Good idea.

This pair turned out half an inch shorter because I was more careful with my rows. I may or may not go back and try to fix that.
