WIP: baby pants - now finished
I'm currently knitting these pants for my daughter Louka: http://www.tinybirdsorganics.com/org...woolpants.html. The wool is Filatura di crosa Zara in blue (wish I'd chosen pink now, after six people in a row assumed Louka was a boy :( ).

Anyway I'm knitting on 3.25mm needles, which is smaller than recommended for the yarn, partly to get the gauge required by the pattern and partly to make a more "solid" fabric. Could this be why it's curling even more than stocking stitch usually does (at least for me)?

Apart from that, and the fact that I'm lucky to get a couple of rows knitted a day, I'm quite happy with how they're going.

I'm not a pink person myself - I'd have chosen green if the shop had had any on sale. I did buy some cream too, so if these work out I'll make another pair in cream.

The blue isn't really as bright as it looks in the photo; it's more of a denim blue.

but you all are so lucky!
in Poland we haven't got so wonderful yarns. there are some German beautiful yarns at one shop in my town, but they are twice more expensive than those Polish-not-so-nice yarns :(

Those are so cute!

<giggle> My oldest daughter looked like a girl and we would have her in pink from head to toe with a bow or frilly hat and strangers would still assume she was a boy! I look real careful and if I dont know I dont guess! heh.

Beautiful baby!

Ugh, I just frogged a few rows :crying: I think I missed an increase, and I'd lost track of where I was up to. I'm still not back to where I was, but at least I know where I am now.

Sorry to hear about the frogging! The pants are really cute! And, I love the color -- I think it'll be perfect for a girl!
