A Few Customs .... And My Largest Longies. Ever.

I finished up a couple of customs recently.

A YYMN Slot:



Custom yarn dyed and knit by me: The colors are much more vibrant in person - and they don't lay all weird now that they are washed and blocked.



A Girly YYMN slot - I hardly ever knit with girly yarn so this was a treat!




And finally ... my largest longies ever for my DH. I started these in the beginning of November and they were my daily project that I would work on while watching Days of Our Lives, lol. They took about 2 and a half pounds of corriedale knit on size 6 24" / 29" circs. Took approximately 96000 stitches.

Final measurements were:
36" waist - a couple inches too big but nothing a drawstring can't fix!
27" Rise
31" Inseam - Thankfully my husband isn't too incredibly tall!

They look a lot skinnier in the photo then they really are. I took my pattern and did the math to adapt it to fit a grown man rather then a baby / toddler. I was happy not to have to add short rows into these. They're incredibly comfy and DH loves them so far. Now I just need to make myself a pair, lol.

wow thise adult longies are so cool, my SIL was just saying how she wants some, I told her someone would have to charge an arm and a leg for the yarn and time it would take, just out of curiosity how much would you have to chage to not be a slave?
