Today I bring you an unbelievable giveaway! Someone has the opportunity to win a pair of longies!
I knitted this pair of longies as I was finishing my Cushy pattern. I knitted them for my little girl, but by the time they were finished she had hit a growth spurt. So they were much too short. I was so sad about it because I love this yarn! When it came out of the dye pot, everyone in the house ooh'ed and aw'ed. It looked as if I tie dyed it. I loved these so much that I just have not been able to list them in my shop. I thought about frogging them and making a new pair of longies for Teeny, but haven't been able to bring myself to do it. So I decided they just need a loving home. One of you lucky ones can give them a home!
Here are their details:
*Bright tones of kelly green and bright blue with bits of purple and white
*Knitted in garter stitch with decorative seed stitch stripes. The garter stitch makes a thick, leak-resistant fabric. So soft and comfy! So bullet-proof!
*100% wool, hand dyed by myself.
*Encased elastic waistband~ no need for a drawstring!
*Wide leg/ Pipe leg.
waist 20 1/2" (easily stretches to 28")
leg 15" around
**Note: Due to the stretchiness of the garter stitch, these longies will get a bit longer in the rise and inseam with wear.
This wool gets softer every time it's washed and lanolized. The casing for the elastic is left open so that you can easily adjust the elastic for a smaller waist. The garter stitch is very stretchy. The rise and inseam length will both relax and get longer. The inseam will likely relax with wear to about an inch longer than it is now.
They have been washed and lanolized and are ready to wear!
I think this color is pretty gender neutral. There a small bits of purple, but I don't think they look too girlie. The purple is pretty subtle.
