I finished my Longies today! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"> I am so excited! I can't believe I took a big 'ol string and made it into pants. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br><a href="http://f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/peapodsmum/vwp?.dir=/Dipes+I+Made&.dnm=Longies+I+knit!!!.jpg&.view=t" target="_blank">Longies!</a><br><br><a href="http://f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/peapodsmum/vwp?.dir=/Dipes+I+Made&.dnm=Bret+wearing+the+Longies!.jpg&.src=ph&.done=http%3A//f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/peapodsmum/vwp%3F.dir=/Dipes%2BI%2BMade%26.dnm=Longies%2BI%2Bknit!!!.jpg%26.src=ph" target="_blank">Bret wearing the Longies!</a><br>
(Not the best pic of him... he is eating a fudgesicle and he put that hat on himself... he looks kind of silly I think!)<br><br>
They are a bit big... I had to roll up the cuffs. Other than that they fit him great! Plenty of room for dipes and they look so gosh darned cute! YAY!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

What a cutie! And nice knitting job! I am going to have to break down and get that pattern. I want to do a black pair or two for under my little one's winter dresses. She wears them with her little black Elefanten boots...bet that would be really cute!

Those are great Julie! You're inspiring me to get out that pattern and give it a try. I was feeling intimidated by it.

Awesome! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
I really want to learn how to knit.<br>
Are the longies hard to knit?<br>
Is there a pattern to buy?

Definately too big <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
You NEED to sell those to someone whose son is just a bit taller than Mr. Magic Butt, and make another pair that fit him perfectly. 'Cause if you're gonna knit, it's gotta be to perfection [subliminal message deleted in anticipation of some rule violation]<br><br>

Wow! Great job! Did you buy the wool from LTK too? I need to do this. Are they knit in the round or just with 2 needles? How long did it take you?<br><br>
Enough questions, I am super impressed!

Thanks everyone! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I am pretty proud of myself b/c I am a beginning knitter. But I have a great yarn shop and the ladies there helped me a bunch on the harder stuff. That's where I got my yarn and needles from too. The pattern is from Theresa of <a href="http://littleturtleknits.com" target="_blank">Little Turtle Knits</a> (she is Knittin' in the Shade on here). Her pattern is easy to follow and she includes an appendix w/ directions on all the stitches you need to know for the pattern. It took me about 3 wks I think to knit them, but I messed up a bunch, esp in the beginning. I could probably do them in about a week and a half or 2 wks now that I know what I'm doing!<br><br>
Kasumi, they are knit in the round. You use circular needles for the body and then double pointed needles for the legs.<br><br>
Morwenna~ I think they would look awesome in black w/ little boots under skirts! Makes me want a girl... *sigh* <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
Thanks again everyone! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
