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!

I have a two year old little girl who’s favorite question is “What doing Momma?” Ninety percent of the time my answer is “I’m knitting”. And that’s what this blog is all about – what I’m up to with my needles and yarn, with a dash of that other ten percent occasionally thrown in to keep it interesting.
I am a mom and piano teacher by day, and a pattern designer by night (and any other tiny speck of time I can pick up my needles!). So most of my knitting adventures are some form of a pattern I am in the process of creating. But I also knit custom longies, shorties and soakers (which are cloth diaper covers).
Today I’m sharing the pair of custom longies (toddler pants) that I’m working on.
The yarn is Mosaic Moon in Birthday Boy colorway, and it’s absolutely scrumptious!
I’m knitting them from the top down, so the ribbing that you see is the waist.
