Can't Get Enough!

I know I shared the teensy tiny pair of Longies that I knit for our baby. Then I was feeling a little bit guilty. After all, I haven't knit a single thing for anyone other than a baby who hasn't been born yet. Plus, no one can model that tiny stuff. And let's be honest, you really need a cute model in order to properly show off clothes that cute, right?

So, I set about making a slightly larger pair of longies for my slightly larger child. I might love these even more.



And yes, Lucas really is THAT skinny. At 22 months, he's just around 18 pounds. Eats like a garbage disposal, but none of it sticks to him. According to my husband's mother, he takes after his father. Just wait till I post the picture she brought me.



I used this pattern again and cast on the 89 stitches that the pattern follows for a smallish size. Of course, they're just a tad too big for Lucas. So, after these pictures were taken, I made him up a drawstring. Perfection.

I admit to making him wear them for two days. In a row. Judge me.

no judging here. We own something like 20+ longies or so. And I can't knit. so....

Lucas makes Daisy look like a chunk since she came in at 21 lbs. at her 18 month check-up. Of course, she has stopped eating so he might catch up yet.

I'm having some serious knitting envy right about now.

You're going to have to crank up the a/c JUST so he can keep wearing them. Love those!

the 89 stitches were too big? ay-yi-yi. kellan is 22 lbs or something like that and i was gonna make it bigger but if those are slightly big on him, i might as well go with the 89. by the way, i love these! the colors are soo cute, it makes me happy!

Those are gorgeous! This seriously makes me want to learn how to knit. My son is a stick too. I'm finishing up a pair of recycled cashmere longies for my son that i'll blog about tomorrow. I was going to make something different with the sweater, but my son claimed it after feeling it, lol.

These pants are awesome and almost make me want to try knitting again. I am a quick crocheter, but I take forever to knit.

Anyway, love the pants!

oh, and I won't judge you. Sometimes my daughter has pajama day... two days in a row.
