Pinterest Pin-along

We are off on an outing today.  Today would have been the day I started breaking ground on our new garden but with the temperatures in the upper 50’s today, we just can’t resist so the garden will wait until the next warm day which the forecast says will be about next weekend 🙁  In the meantime, I am busy with paper and pen doing the important work of planning.  Checking whenever we have sun, were it lands or does not land in the garden, where the water goes when it rains etc.

With all this talk of warming weather, I got to thinking that in the spring, all of Matthew’s longies may not be so great for being out in the warm weather.  I am making him my usual bucket seated shorties from my own crochet pattern but wanted to knit something up.  It is so hard to be a mistress to crochet but ever since I learned to knit, my heart really is there more so than with crochet though I understand crochet so much more and can construct most anything with it.

These shorties are super simple (do I always say that about my projects?).  Many years ago, I saw a pair like these somewhere and sketched the idea down in my crochet notebook.  There was no pattern with it but looking at the sketch last week, it seemed so simple that I just cast it on.

I didn’t of course write down the steps I took but I’m pretty sure I can figure it out from looking at the diaper soaker.  I still have to add some ribbing around the leg openings to give it a bit more security but so far I really like it and it is a fast knit.

So what did you make this week?  I can’t wait to see it.  Please post a link to the pin that inspired you in your post :)

    oh my! I cast on a bright yellow soaker for our new babe on the way! Too bad I am a MUCH slower knitter than you are! I am knitting one that I love…it is basically one sized because it is solid ribbing 🙂 wonderful!

      Did you go with yellow before the reveal? I love yellow boy or girl 🙂

    I hope more people are busy just like me (wanted to join in but didn't get my project finished yet) because I don't want you to stop this like the Stash Bash. Please don't take that negatively, I just hope you continue this. You inspire me so I am sure you also inspire others.

    I'm a little late to the party this week, but I posted my new favorite recipe.

    Very cute! I can't imagine just being able to whip something up without a pattern! No crafting here this week I'm afraid. Hopefully soon though.
