Brazil for World Cup!!

I had stared these shorts back when Ty was first born cuz we knew we were going to go fro Brazil for 2010 world cup. well i didnt finish them and they sat in my knitting drawer fro over a year and when i realized 2010 was coming up i had to finish them. Well i picked them up and looked at thema nd thought holly $hit now i know why i didnt finish them. well needless to say i had to frog them cuz i had made him an XL pair of shorties and there was no way he was going to fit in them. they were ven huge on Taryn(4 yrs old)

Let me say the froggin on them was horrible cuz i had duplicate stitched the whole flag ont eh back of them and had to take it all out. well ended up cutting the flagg off the shorts and trying to save as many scraps from the shorts as i could and so i started them over and got them done in a few days. and i ended up knitting up a size small shorts for my potty trained little boy!! i love how much better they turned out!!

They are made out of cascade 220 yarn and are a size small longies!!!

Matching sets

I had received 9 oz of a skein of yarn that was very boyish and didnt know what to do with it till like three days before i needed it. so i decided to knit up ty(recently potty trained) a pair of shorts and thens some newborn longies for a friend that was having a baby shower for her baby boy. so here are the sets i made.!!!!!!

Hand Dyed yarn and knit Longies

These longies were for a trade that i did to get something special for Jez(well turned out for something fro Taryn!!). I love how it turned out and how the dye worked out. These were a custom dye job and knit fro a very sweet mama that has been thru a lot in her life and is my same age. I had some yarn left over so i thought i'd make her a hat to go with them.

I used a superwash wool so she doesnt have to hand wash them. She was very greatfull for that.

Sorry it is a bit blurry but the mama said she will get me action shots so that will help.

I made this sweater for my little girl TexyAnn. It fits nice and snug according to my husband, Jez. I love how it looks and fits nad hopefully it will fit still next fall. But we will see.
