Two little things.

Earlier this month Chloe bought this yarn, Rub-A-Dub, and the accompanying custom slot.
And earlier today I finished making these for her baby, due in the spring.

I am particularly pleased with the 'Big Pants' style soaker. It was originally going to be shorties to wear under a sleepsuit as I have yet to come up with a soaker pattern that I like. However it became obvious as I neared the gusset that there would not be enough yarn to run to shorties... and the 'big pants' style was the obvious solution. I may well be making some of them on purpose now!

(Although they do rather remind me of the nasty Navy-Blue-Knickers that I used to have to wear for indoor PE - and occasionally outdoor PE on a freezing playing field with a public footpath running alongside. Wouldn't be allowed these days...)

Past And Future

Loads has been going on recently so a quick update is in order!

I spent a bit of time on getting some newborn longies made - lots of stress getting the right amount of yarn in the right thickness for the right sizes and ended up with two little tiny pairs. The first pair sold almost the moment they were listed!
The second, slightly larger, pair are still available:
And I dyed up this lovely yarn and offered it with an optional custom slot - also now spoken for: And lastly today:

Little sneek peeks of yarn for my collab with Scrunchkins... pics are only available here until it arrives with Allie!

Prize Plus for Jane

Way back in the fog of history - well July anyway - I offered a custom slot for a pair of shorties or boardies as a prize for the CNA Birthday celebrations. The winner went away to look for the perfect yarn for her prize to be made up in. Eventually she came up with the lovely Summer Skies BFL dyed by tashagem and as it's now coming up to winter she asked if her prize could be upgraded to a pair of longies.
So here they are (not a good photography day I'm afraid).

I hope you like them Jane - there should be extra rise to move into and a bit of an extra turn up in the legs.

And now it's full tilt on the BBM stuff...
