    Default Gorlitsa/Elizabeth's Progress Thread

    I started a project and took a picture, so I'll start a thread!

    I'm working on a pair of soakers for another mom on this site. She requested something girlie, and this is the wool I found.



    This is only about two hours of work -- I'm finally getting the hang of continental! Yea!

    The shorties are done! I was very surprised how well they turned out. I was kinda winging it, but they look good!

    That's awesome! I really like your pattern and colours. As Michelle asked, what yarn is that? Is the pattern online? I'd like to make some for my little one!

    Oh, wow, I didn't see replies!

    I'll have to look at the tag at home for the yarn type. I got it at the local yarn shop.

    The pattern is pretty much made up. I just knitted a swatch and made the waist the right size, did some increases in the back for tushie room, and then used another pattern (for little kid pants) for the gusset and the crotch. I am honestly amazed how well it out!

    Apparently I threw out the tag for the yarn, but I think I'm going to go back for another ball (I still have some left), so update on yarn pending.

    Now I'm starting another pair for Deanne. She sent me black paton's wool.

    Would you be able to make a brief attempt at a pattern for me? I would love to make a couple (and my mom too).

    I guess things that I would hope for are...

    How many stitches you cast on, how you did the upper ribbing, how many you increased over how many rows (for the crotch), etc...

    Of course, only if it doesn'tt ake too long.

    Or you could just link a couple patterns you used as guidelines - I'd be happy with that too!

    Okay, a rough pattern is:

    Cast on a multiple of 4 (I did 84, I think) and do k2, p2 ribbing for four rounds, then do a round of k2tog, yo (for the drawstring) then 4 more round of ribbing.

    The first soaker I did, I increased every four stiches on the back half, on the first row. This current one I'm trying to do short rows, and I'm not liking it. More on that later.

    For the crotch, I'm using the gusset technique from a littleturtleknits pattern. It's copyrighted, but I'm only using part of the pattern.

    Then just do the legs as long as you want.
