Just put the finishing touches on the brown and green longies, and another pair of green shorties that I’ve been working on.
The longies are knit in Araucania with Cascade 220 trim.
And the shorties are knit in Purewool (Forest of Pines colorway) – which is quickly becoming one of my favorites… it’s so deliciously soft and fluffy!

A glimpse of my Sunday evening knitting project….
Just finished up the first leg of this second pair of newborn longies.
Guess this is not officially a “work in progress” anymore, but I wanted to share anyhow. The first pair of newborn longies are officially finished!
All finished, drawstring and everything! Aren't they cute?!
And yesterday I started on the second pair in this lovely Araucania yarn, with subtle greens, browns and yellows. I’m using a dark chocolate brown Cascade 220 for the trim.
Newborn longies #2
I’ve tried so many longies patterns and never found one that really fit perfect, so I’ve been working on writing out my own pattern… it’s been a long, long road, but it will be finished one of these days!
I’ll be sure to keep you posted!
This evening I’m listening to Blue Monday on the radio and finishing up this lovely *tiny* little pair of longies (wool pants used to cover cloth diapers – the wool serves as a water proof cover). The first of many to be made for Baby Moo. I just have to finish the chord and they’re all done!
What do you think?
A glimpse into my Blue Monday
I’m working on the first of many pairs of newborn longies for Baby Moo.
These are knitting up very nicely in a colorway of cool blues with navy blue trimming.
They are so tiny… it’s absurdly cute!
I just split the knitting into two and seamed up the crotch to start the legs this evening.
What do you think so far?
(Can you guess which pic I took with the hipstamatic app on my phone?)
My body is starting to take on a bit of roundness…
I’m experimenting with round knitting. Not to be confused with knitting in the round. I’m actually knitting things that will ultimately be round.
This is my first experiment, a round dish cloth.
What I really want to make is a round baby blanket for baby #2, who’s arriving in late September, but I figure I ought to start with something a bit smaller.
Happy Blue Monday!
