Angora and Merino and Cashmere, Oh My!

I finished 3 pairs of recycled longies on Tuesday night. Washed and lanolized them and patiently waited for them to dry yesterday. This morning, they were ready to wear. Yay! I raced through these but they turned out cute. I'm still trying to get the hang of these so it's a work in progress.

These ones are a blend of angora/lambswool/nylon. I made them for my friend's daughter. She tried them on today and they fit perfectly. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera to get a pic of her in them yet.


These ones are Merino Wool. I'm quite happy with these, they look super boyish without having trains or puppies on them!

And on my little guy.


This pair is Cashmere. So soft. I really like the natural colour and the cuffs. They're just a tad too long right now though. They'll just last us longer this way!



On to the next pair! I have a stack of sweaters waiting to be chopped up.
