I just got the yarn I've been wanting!!! SPAM me with YYMN!!!

The stars lined up for me today mamas!!!

I just bought some awsome yarn and need longies (knitted). My mom is a little nervous of 'ruining' the yarn as she hasn't knitted in years. So, do I bring Mom out of knitting retirement....or....does anyone know of someone I should ask?
Thanks Mamas!!

Here is the Yarn, Beemer Knits Emmet!!!

About the yarn: I totally stalked this yarn (by myself ) about a month ago from Beemer Knits and didn't get it...I've never been quite the same since. It truly ruined me for all other yarn! And then it came back into my life, just minutes ago on Spots Corner

I would love to crochet them for you, but if you're looking for knit you need someone else!

I say buy the picky pants pattern from Litle Turtle Knits or the perfection pants pattern from Wooly Wonders and bring your mom out of retirement! Tell her she can't ruin the yarn! Wool is wonderful!! She can miss up and rip it out and redo it if she has to! Also she can always ask questions here or I would love to help her just pm me!

I would also suggest the free patterns from Tiny Bird's website. I started with those because they are flat and have seams. I later found some circular needles and have decided I like both methods.

The wool looks great.
