Scrappies Down

Finished up the “newborn” sized scrappy longies that I was making from Mosaic Moon Cestari scraps…

Turns out this yarn is a much thicker worsted weight than the Araucania I originally wrote the pattern up in, so this pair ended up being a whole size bigger. It’s not really a problem, as the babe will probably be in smalls for a lot longer than newborns. Mostly I just have to keep it in mind for when I’m writing the patterns.

And speaking of writing patterns, I just signed up several pattern testers for this longies pattern, so the ball is really rolling now!

I also just got started on the next size up – medium.

If you’re interested in being a pattern tester for this longies pattern comment on this post and I’ll get you all set up.

Cheers!

Mosaic Moon Scrappies!

A few days ago I got some wonderful Mosaic Moon (on Cestari) yarn scraps in the mail.  And last night I couldn’t sleep, so I decided to get started on a pair of scrappy longies for Baby Moo.  I got most of the way through the waist band before I pooped out and had to go to bed.

This morning I changed my mind about using one of the Mosaic Moon colors for the trim (waist band and leg cuffs), so I found a good coordinating trim from my stash (O-Wool, in an eggplant kind of color).

I frogged the first waist band and got to about the same point on the second.  Here are the progress photos.
