Okay, here are the latest shorties that I have knit.
Pattern: Ladybug Loops (Ravelry)
Needles: 4mm for the waistband, 4.5mm for the body. 2 pairs of circular needles for each size.
Yarn: Custom dyed organic merino from in 10ply/worsted weight. Knits up like 12ply/bulky though.
Mods: I did a knitted cast on instead of a stretchy cast on because I like the look of it better. I did a 2x2 rib for the waistband with eyelet holes for a knitted I-cord. I did a garter stitch hem for the cuffs.
Love how quickly this knit up with this yarn and with the 2 circulars instead of the 1 long circular using magic loop.
I totally LOVE the way that the colours pooled in this knit.

Hey all, it's been so long since I posted. Sorry about that. I've been crafting on and off; sewing, knitting and baking cool things. First up: Sewing! I made myself a knife roll for work at the start of the year. I also made one for my boss as a present.
