My first longies!

Posted on 2007.09.12 at 02:24
Made from an unravelled Goodwill sweater and some leftover purewool (doubled up since purewool wicks like a mofo). The dye from the purewool bled when I washed them, but I don't think it's too noticeable.

Most labor-intensive thing I've EVER made. Note to self: don't ever make another pair of longies using single crochet stitches!

I tried doing short rows on the bum and royally screwed it up somehow. It got really weird, so I tucked in the corners and sewed them down inside. It looks goofy as hell when they lay flat, but you don't notice with a diaper underneath.

They're a little baggy, but I made them to grow into anyway. And yes, the pockets are crooked. They were too much of a pain to attach for me to bother going back and taking them off so I can align them better.
