Occasionally...did you use a smaller needle when you knit the ribbing? Many people do the curly purly waistband when they want to go no-tie. You could also thread the drawstring in backwards & tie it in back.
If sounds like it wants you to make a hole for something in your knitting -- buttonhole, mitten thumb, afterthought heel in a sock... Do it just like they said. Put the next X sts. on a holder (or extra needle, or waste yarn if you don't have one), then look at your knitting. You (presumeably) have some sts. on each needle. On the right needle you will pick up your yarn & use the backward loop cast on to add more sts. to that needle. Then you will just continue...
That's awesome, Stacey! ...and it sounds like the sort of thing dh did with ds1.
What Melissa said. If it's different enough to look like you did it on purpose, go for it; otherwise just go with the body color. Maybe if you do use the other brown you could also use that color to do the icord at the waist (assuming you're going to do one). I was sure you were going to say your dd had outgrown them, lol.

I'm in!! If you seriously dont want to organize, i'd be happy to! It does my soul good to organize something; goodness knows I don't get to organize anything in my house with all these little ankle biters around!

He's not crying - I'm just talking about all-out screaming until I either let him go or finish what I was doing. Aren't they a little young for tantrums?! Don't think of them...
