Skirted Longies a.k.a. Strawberry Shortcake Pants
The mom who ordered these wanted them to match a shirt she'd commissioned from someone else. I think they turned out much cuter than most people around me were thinking they would. Knitting takes a certain amount of foresight. You have to be able to envision what you're creating, especially if you're designing from scratch. You have to be able to hold the picture in your head and not get distracted when people around you look at you funny and think you're totally crazy to be trying THAT pink with THAT green??!! Yes folks, I do know what I'm doing :). Yes, they look like Strawberry Shortcake pants. I think that's what's so lovable about them. I can't wait to try some other designs in skirted longies.
