i don't have any hand knitted soakers or longies. only butt sweaters and recycled pants. i crave the hand knit but do you only wear them in the house? is it just me who has to bring two extra pairs of pants everywhere? or do other babies manage to find every muddy puddle and greasy bike chain as well? i don't know if i could stand seeing it so traumatized. maybe i should just get something black or grey... so the question is-if you love hand knit longies how often do you really wear them? where do you wear them? at the park, store, only at home, what?
