Mama Longies - Had to make me some!

Okay, so I decided to take on a project just for me. I wanted a nice long pair of hand-knitted longies. So, I decided to make me some. It did take a lil while, but they're sooooooo warm! (Oh, and ignore the messy / toy filled floor! ) Oh, and please also ignore the completely mis-matched top I'm wearing. I was just trying these on for size.

Close up (kiddo took the pic with flash):


(Ignore the fat me )

Well, I measured me...and misjudged my rise still. I guess it's better to have to much and not too little rise! haha It took a billion tons of yarn! Let's see - I think it took about 6 skeins of yarn. I had no idea going into it how many it'd take! I actually had to go back and get a lil more. Guess I need to lose some weight!

Thanks Mama. I had fun making them, if nothing else.

Man, just wearing them around for a lil while - they really are both comfy and warm. I even walked out in the snow a minute ago. Oh, what color(s) should I make next!? Maybe I'll make my kiddos some too.

Thank you so much! I really do wish I had thought to count! I'd do it a couple hours then put it down and pick it up again when the mood struck. My DH actually commented that my skills must have picked up some cause it didn't take me as long as it might normally take me to make DD longies. It didn't take as long as I imagined it would, but I dunno exactly how long. I may make another pair - then I'll have to figure out how long.
