These went back up for sale after the buyer won a charity auction from Elizabeth (<a href="http://www.knitinyourpants.com" target="_blank">www.knitinyourpants.com</a>) as well, and I was lucky enough to snag them! WOHOO! I am a terrible wool hyena for some reason, so I was so glad to get these. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Here are some pics of them on my son. They also fit my daughter! Elizabeth is SO sweet and she is going to make me another pair with a shorter rise. She has been tweaking and working with this pattern to make them PERFECT. There is so much shaping and contour on these. They fit lit a glove. The short rows in the back are just perfect and the gusset in the crotch (see the sitting pic for what I mean) fits just awesome. I can't imagine the work that goes into these (as a very novice knitter!). She also plans to make longies in the future. I have a LOT of knitted wool, and these are truly 'luxury!'<br><br><a href="http://shim1.shutterfly.com/procsserv/F-BMmbRw4btGFnggbQqAc3" target="_blank">Sitting (minus the seat cushion thanks to AJ <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">)</a> (Check out that shaping!)<br><br><a href="http://shim1.shutterfly.com/procsserv/F-BMmbRw4btGFnogbQqAc1" target="_blank">Side</a> (Can you see the short rows to shape the bum?

Beautiful!! Great colors, and I agree the shaping is wonderful. I really like the shorts and longies for wool "covers." And those are great!

We got our KIYP charity soaker and a "got cloth?" soaker a few days ago. I LOVE them! I just wish I'd been able to afford those shorts as well...they look great on your son!
