Ah, Mallrats.

I did... no knitting today. Just sat. I have to knit the pocket for the romper so I know if I need an extra button from April, need to knit my other romper, and do a bunch of drawstrings, AND figure out what to knit for Halloween & knit that up. But I sat. Oh well.

And wow on the 5T longies!!!!

Re: Knitters/Hookers/Spinners/Dyers *WIP* 8/5

I started a pair of longies last night and got as far as the gusset. I decided to frog them and do linen stitch, spent all afternoon on that. Decided to frog again and make them in tunisian which is what I had in mind when I purchased the wool Good thing I love the yarn!

Re: Knitters/Hookers/Spinners/Dyers *WIP* 8/5

Dude, once I have to frog something (unless its a yymn of course and i have a deadline lol) I wont knit it again right away. It makes me mad at the yarn

Btw- I love the name Lorelai. I totally wanted to name Piper that but Chuck veto'd it. My gmas name is Laura Lee and some ppl call her Lorelai.

OK, I just split for the sleeves on the SH (size 2t) and its pooling kinda, not horrible, but it is. I hope it knits up nice thru the rest of the body. I hate alternating, and Im already behind so I dont want to have to frog it Im exhausted though so Im gonna hit the sack. Talk to you ladies tmrw!!

Thanks guys Yeah I'm tempted to take a break but I just had some yarn come in for a custom so I'll whip those longies up really quick then put everything on hold for a while! An 8" inseam is going to seem like a piece of cake now

I'm actually going to weigh the remainder tomorrow at the post office. I started out with 11oz of organic gaia colorway and I'm thinking I have around 4-5oz or so left. There is quite a bit! This gaia goes a looooong way...I can get a hudson hat and probably a Sleuthing hoodie with the colorway as trim/pocket out of it as well I'll let you know though!!
