knitted longies

knitted longies

The morning after my last post (the one claiming that these longies were destined for the UFO heap), I overheard a discussion at playgroup. One of the other mums had, just before I posted my abandonment notice, found my blog while searching for longies to buy and thought “Hey, I know that baby!”

Little Poe is just the cutest little boy ever and I KNEW these longies were perfect for him so of course I immediately offered to finish them for him. And I tell you, I instantly felt such a weight lifted off my chest that I actually had a valid reason to finish this project. Without someone to wear them I just did not have time to spare to knit them, and it was the right decision at the time to stop, but I so hate leaving things unfinished. It was still slow going, but with an actual reason to finish and a birthday looming I found the motivation and they are done. And they are unspeakably cute on, if I do say so myself. So cute in fact that I may have to make another pair (that fits) for Grace.

They are so cute and adorable, and perfect for a present too.

Great to see you knitting again Jo, however slowly, and Grace is looking just beautiful : )

I was soooo happy to see that you picked the needles up and finished the longies! Even more happy to see that you posted about it! I hope to see more from you in the future, even if it is slow coming!
