RAVE for Kaysie of Wacky Alpacky (shirt)!

Talk about instant gratification. I had yarn OTW to make DS some Halloween longies, and Kaysie had a perfect pattern. I sent a stock photo of the yarn, touched base after it arrived to clarify a color tone, and then I got to work. Small longies usually take me 4 days of decent knitting, so I figured I'd get them done before the shirt arrived. But no! The shirt came in I want to say 2 days, and I'd only just started the longies! It was just perfect and so inspiring for my knitting. In fact I had to put the outfit on DS tonight after finishing the knitting, even though they're not blocked yet. Here's Kaysie's fabulously done shirt, with DD "Trick Or Treat" longies:



LOVE the shirt, and what a pleasure to get it so quickly and with kind and quick communication. Thank you, Kaysie, I can't thank you enough as he's going to be wearing this outfit every day at least until Halloween and the photos will be treasures for me always.

Isn't it a great CW for this season? It's Dashing Dachs - she does a Fall/Halloween theme every year it seems. This colorway is called "Trick Or Treat".

I'm afraid I'm going to use them as much as possible this season, but possibly would be able to part with them when he outgrows them. I can't promise anything though - I haven't been able to part with any of his baby woollies, and I didn't even knit those!
