My first pair of shorties!

And my first time using Pure Wool too! I love it, sooooooooooo soft. It is all I want to use now. I wish there was a PW store in my neighborhood. lol

The fit on these shorties is awesome. Although the inseam seems a little long to me, what do you think? I also made the drawstring a tad too short. How long should it be? My son has a 18 in waist. and I *think the string is 30 in long.

Enough ?'s and rambling...





On to the next pair!

Re: My first pair of shorties!

I *think* I started on them Friday. I took me time. They were mostly finished yesterday. I only had to BO and make the drawstring today. If I had time I could proablly make a pair in two evenings.

I JUST learned to knit in January so there is hope for you knew knitters. Just keep practicing.

Thanks for the compliments!

LOVE THEM! What is the colorway?

I think the inseam is great! I like a longer inseam anyway- and then it gives you some growing room
