So, I had a severe case of mommy brain when I was doing the calculations for the size of the longies that I was working on and they ended up being about 3 inches too wide through the booty… ARRRGH!!!
I had to rip out the knitting all the way back down to the ribbed waist. Bummer!
I went back and recalculated, took out 12 stitches, and have re-knitted back to the legs and am about half way finished with the first one.
I’ll be sure to post pictures of the longies when I’m finished.
For those of you who are beginner knitters, it may bring you some comfort to know that I have been knitting for 23 years and I am still totally vulnerable to this kind of brain blip while knitting… very humbling.
