Cute picture warning

Warning! These pictures may cause heart palpitations, so if you have a weak heart be careful when viewing.

Here are some pictures of my latest creation just finished this very morning. I stayed up way late last night to get all the knitting done and spent the golden Sesame Street hour weaving in ends. The green is a nice avacody green that I dyed myself. I did not think the green attractive enough to use on it's own , but when paired with the brown it looks awesome.

They are the same size as the brown and blue longies. Origionally they were almost finished shorties, but I decided that the colors would make great stripey longies so I frogged back to where the short rows needed to be added and started over. Next time I am going to use smaller needles to make the leg cuffs, they do not fold over very firmly in their current state. I added in more stitches so that the legs are less legging like and more pants like than the legs on the brown and blue longies. I don't really have a shirt that goes very well with these, so you get to see Harry shirtless. They have not been washed or blocked yet, I wanted to get these pictures taken.


Harry demonstrating the comfortable nature of these pants. As you can see he can move freely in them.


A closeup.

The money shot.

Awesome, I just saw your Nursery post and believe me, I feel your pain (I'm in til August). But what I wanted to ask you was about the bit about your son passing out. Is that true? He passes out when crying? I'm very curious b/c I know a lady who has a 1 year old who also does this--he seems to get worked up and then will hold his breath and then faint--but he has gone minutes before reviving! It's very freaky and drs haven't been helpful in explaining what is going on. Does this sound familiar? If you've posted about this, will you direct to a post about it, or email me if that is easier. Thanks!!!

I HIGHLY suggest the vitamix blender just be ready to spend mega bucks on it!! It is worth the money though it is something we use on a daily basis not to mention the multiple uses it has by making soup and breads and desserts. Its crazy!!
