Scarecrow Lap Tee and Fall Longies

My 1st pair of longies, first knitting project, fresh off the needles still need to be blocked! Made a few mistakes, but hopefully the next pair will go smoother!

I wanted to do a set that would work for Halloween/Fall/Thanksgiving, so I settled on a scarecrow in the pumpkin patch! Hoping to get some Pumpkin Patch pictures tomorrow after we have dried out some, lots of rain in ole FL lately! I will update with modeling pics soon!

You should be SUPER proud. As a new knitter myself I can appreciate your work What pattern did you use.

And did you MAKE that amazing shirt?!!!!!

Thank you! Yes, hoping the 2nd pair will go faster and smoother, this pair took me about a week working at night after the baby went to bed!

I started with the free doodle pants pattern, but decided I wanted a gusset, so I switched to the sheepy pants pattern around there. So my count was a little off, patterns call for different stitches, but I think they turned out okay.

And yes the tee is mine. I'm afraid that I work better at sewing knit fabrics right now, rather than knitting yarn! Hopefully in time, I will be okay at both!

Thanks! Just some wool yarn I picked up on ebay, so no colorway mentioned. It was very nice though a little more peach than I expected.
