My goodness, but it's been a while...

It's probably been a while because i have been so busy knitting!! I have recently become a licensed Butt Knits knitter! I am so happy about this! After trying out so many longies patterns, i have found the ones that i really love. Amber's patterns and designs are so fresh and new, and her basic patterns are tailor made to work with cloth diapers. The patterns knit up into a nice tight fabric, much better to keep the wet inside!
So, my first few projects were Ski Pants. They are as of yet unfinished because i ran out of wool. I might have to frog and start over in a smaller size since it can be hard to find a perfect match for a certain dyelot of yarn. Here is a picture of the longies so far...

My next Butt knits knit-up was a pair of super cute bloomers. They totally make me wish we could have another little baby girl! Here is the picture of those, which can be found on my etsy store:

After applying for a cottage license to sell Butt Knits, Amber asked me to test a new pattern that she had been working on... the super cute Hugs and Kisses longies. I made up a pair, listed them on my Etsy and they were gone in a flash! I absolutely love all things cabled, so these pants were right up my alley. Here is the finished product:

I have another pair of hugs and kisses on the needles right now, hopefully i will have them finished today or tomorrow! They are a beautiful bright green that i can't seem to capture with my camera... frustrating!!! Look for them to be listed on Etsy by tomorrow evening!!
