So I have been knitting. Just not often, or for very long. 5 minutes here, 2 minutes there. And those moments are great while they last, but they have all been while Grace napped in the car. And she just dropped that nap. So I think I am going to have to start knitting while I watch the news (or something), otherwise these longies will never see the light of day.
Longies seemed like a simple enough way to get back into knitting, however really the idea that it would be simple and quick was a great big furfy… I would like to say that it’s just that I am out of practice, but I kind of suspect that with my knitting style I would always have sucked this bad at shortrows in the round:
Certainly they have provided a nice round bottom, but god it’s lumpy.
I am hoping it will even out with washing and wear, but mostly I figure I can cover it up nicely with the decorations I intend to put on to make them more girly. Sadly it’s not so easy to fix the rise being too short. This is what they looked like just before I started ripping (so I could add more dodgy shortrows):
