Knit with beautiful Toasted Pumpkin Seed on BFL from Happy Hands Yarns. These were also my first attempt at magic loop knitting. I was able to knit both legs at the same time which saved me a TON of time finishing. Timothy has wee little legs, too–the inseam is only about eight inches! I hope to catch some action pics soon but it’s hard to ask an 18-month-old to sit still.
P.S. I’m still available for customs. You can find more info here. In honor of my 30th birthday this month, I’m going to take 30% off all customs!
Knit for a trade, these custom longies are 1×1 striped with a custom colorway and a solid green. I had to play around with the striping to get it just right, but I love the way they turned out. I scored some super-cute fitteds (think robots & mint chocolate zoo!) from Tara in return.
LOOK AT THAT FAAAAAAAAACCCCCEEEEE!!!
I can’t honestly say that we can take care of a flock of angora goats, but it sure would be nice to have access to all that silky wool. Jamie’s getting really good at spinning and I would just love to knit some longies for Timothy with our own stash.
If you’d like to enter to win your own flock of award-winning Angora goats with their own custom shed, head on over to the Martha’s Vineyard Fiber Farm blog. You’ll have to write an essay and be able to get the goats yourself, but if you live in the New York area, that wouldn’t be too much trouble.
For us, we have land, Jamie’s got mad essay-writing skills, but I can’t see myself being able to handle the responsibility of any more creatures for another year or so. Besides, I’ve told Jamie that before we get any chickens or goats, there are several home-improvement projects that need to be finished first. We need to keep it real, right? I think between the kids, Jamie’s new etsy shop, my hyenacart (that I keep forgetting to update), THE KIDS, the cats, my music, my blogs, and other basic housekeeping, we keep busy enough. Maybe my temporary hiatus from Creative Memories is a good thing.
