Attack of the Tiny Pants Addiction: Part 2

In my last post I talked about my new bout of tiny pants syndrome, and how I had already cast on another pair in the form of dungarees. These have, sadly, been moving a lot slower than the first pair although are still as desperately cute.

Although I love what the end project is going to look like, and would probably knit these again, I did find a few things I would probably change the next time. You can see my notes here if you’re interested!

I’ve been knitting these in Berroco Modern Cotton DK which is super soft but a wee bit splitty (I blame the cotton to be honest) and I wouldn’t mind knitting a couple more summer items for Baby S out of this stuff (which is saying a lot since I usually shy away from summer yarns. What can I say, I’m a wool girl). I’m starting to wonder how viable a cotton knit nursing cover would be.

On a non-knitting note, I’ve think I’ve hit peak bowling ball:

I mean, yes, I acknowledge I/Boy still have roughly 2 months of growing left but guys, I literally became exhausted yesterday trying to zip up my boots. Dear lord. Thank goodness tomorrow is April which means slip on shoes and no pants!

What are you guys knitting?

Attack of the Tiny Pants Addiction: Part 2

An Obsession with Tiny Pants

I knew it would happen sooner or later. I knew that it was inevitable. I knew that one day I’d have to stop knitting Boy little wee sweaters and move on to other wardrobe accompaniments. But I had no idea it would hit me so hard: the love of tiny pants.

These wee little things are actually called Tiny Pants by Megan Goodacre and have been the most joyful and quickest thing I’ve knit in 2017! I literally finished them with a day, and since finishing them have been debating how many pairs of pants like these Boy might need.

They’re knit up in Sugar Bush Yarns Crisp in the colours Titanium and Andrew’s Aqua. I had been oogling the Crisp since Dee ordered it into the store and knew from the beginning it’d make a great baby-friendly yarn. Boy, was I right! It was delicious to work with and I loooooove the colours together. My only qualm with it is the lack of yardage (there is only about 95 yards per skein) but I think the squishiness of it may make up for it a bit.

Now I’ve got another pair of tiny pants on the needles. Well, technically not pants, but dungarees.
