Re: Before and After.

Wow - what a difference. so yo basically unravelled the whole thing and did it again? I can't think how else you would make such a change.

Of course I am barely a third of the way through my first pair of longies -- and tempted at this point to lop them off and call it a hat - lol!

Re: Before and After.

So this has got me thinking. I see a lot of longies that I wish didn't pool quite so much. On FSOT, etc. But it seems like SO MUCH TROUBLE to do what you did.

You basically had to completely undo them, wet the yarn and let it dry to get the kinks out, wind it back up, and reknit them.

Right????

Yep. Unraveling isn't too hard, nor is washing and letting it dry. Its just a little extra work. I think it'd be worth it for a hard to find colorway or like in this case, where the legs were actually different sizes (both in width and length). But I probably wouldn't want to if I could get the yarn myself, lol.

Its much easier to just knit it right the first way though, definitely. I don't mind helping out a friend though! I know she was sooo disappointed by them when she first got them, I was happy to help

Very nice!

So the question burning in everyone's mind that only the knitter can tell us: Was it REALLY all the yarn's fault?
