Show-off! LTK Picky Pants Shorties

I just have to share:



I used Paton's Merino since these are my "practice" pair (still waiting on my PW!!). I can't wait to see what they look like blocked!

Awesome! I'm working on a pair now for my 19 mo dd. Ya know, I hardly ever block any of my wool. I've never needed it. I've never used Patons or PW either, so I'd love to know how it works and if it really needs blocking after it's soaked.

Nice i-cord too! Those are so tiring on the hands, I think. You did an awesome job!

I've never blocked any of mine, either. And I have used Purewool.

They look great, though!

Paton's is a cheap wool that you can get at craft stores. It pills REALLY easily, so I wouldn't recommend it for crawlers.

I want to block mainly because I want to see if I can get the short rows in the rear looking better. I hid the wrapped stitches well, but they still look a little frumpy.

Here's a good article on blocking: http://www.knitty.com/issuewinter02/FEATdiyknitter.html

Very cool lady, now that you know how to do the pattern, you can help me when my PW comes in! We should get together for a knitting day...
