I used a seafoam stitch for the cuff, which was super fun to knit and also created such a pretty fabric. Very fitting for beach shorts. So... Without further ado, here they are!

Please ignore my post pregnancy tummy skin

The cw is MM Rhiannon on Aran tweed. I used approx 375-400 yds. I will get better action shots soon! I love them so much though. So comfy and cute!
Eta: woah, it flipped my action shots upside down! Lemme see if I can fix that...

stitching, witching, brewing, dyeing, spinning
So pretty! I love that cw. I want some. Will you tell me how to make them?

I love the shorts! I prefer to live in ignorance of my measurements though

I'm going to try to finish these shorties today and then dig out the Dino stuff.

Both boys are still feeling pretty yucky today, but my oldest is very excited that it's his birthday. He woke up and asked if it was. All he's told me he wants so far is cake. Maybe I'll be able to get him to give me a dinner request soon.

I found out last night that my bil and his brainless girlfriend are the reason my kids are sick. They brought her kids to mothers day dinner at my in laws while they were sick and didn't tell anybody. They just dosed then up with all kinds of meds and set them loose.

Now my kids are sick and need nebulizer treatments to be comfortable. I won't be letting then around my kids for awhile.

Morning. Dh let me sleep in this morning, woke up with a tummy ache and feeling head coldy. Could just be my allergies though. Ds2 is head coldy so I am staying home from church with him. I don't want to make anyone else sick.

Will have dragon pics in just a little bit.

Here is Dani's dragon. He is in Katie's Blue Thunder colorway on cestari (yes my hands still hurt). I love how he turned out! I hope Dani's son likes him too.

Aw! He is so cute! You always do such wonderful dragons!
So the shorts were really easy. The Eviepants pattern goes up by 2" per 8 stitches. So I just took the largest size, adjusted the measurements, and added stitches everywhere necessary (waistband, increase round, etc). The one thing to keep in mind is that the rise will be based on what you are comfortable with. Obviously none of us wear cloth diapers so the longgggg rise isn't necessary the other thing I did was keep the gusset quite small (8 stitches) because of the same reason as the rise.
