    this is a LTK hybrid ribby. i seem to have lost a crotch row or two and the legs came out a teeny bit tight. so sincei t was too bulky for what i needed with the drawstring anyway i frogged it and am restartign it with the curly purly waistband.

    but his pic is cute and worth seeing i think

    and finally some longies i whipped out the other day...i havea bit contemplated putting adragonfly on them..but then i don't kkno if i want them to be out of commision long enough for me to do that. they are cute already. lol

    How cute! So, how long does it take you to knit a pair of longies? I go to my 2nd knitting class tomorrow, and I'm hoping my knitting skills get a little faster than they are right now! LOL

    i could slam out out a pair of large longies in a day if i had to but it would hurt, i can whip them out in two days and can finish them easily in three days :)

    Wow, Selissa, you are really gifted at knitting. How long ago was it you first learned to knit?

    thank you :D

    let's see i started knitting when lu was about a year and a half old. but really didn't do much untill i was about 7 months preggo with rowan. so a year and a half total, 9/10 months of active knitting. once you get it, i think it is fairly easy :D

    I love the longies.
    I don't think I'd add anything to the 2nd pair. It's nice to have some things not embellished, yk? And they really are lovely the way they are.

    very nice! I can't imagine that I'll be anywhere near that good in a year and a half... but it is inspiring! A great model, too!
