Purple Pixie Pants
Before N was born, I could easily whip up a pair of newborn longies in three days. Now that I’m caring for both a baby and a toddler, this particular pair of longies took me a couple of weeks to knit.
Having two small children isn’t nearly as chaotic as I thought it might be, but we are still finding our rhythm. That’s just the beauty of it though, the rhythm of family life is always changing. Some days the change is more subtle than others but it’s always there, growing and developing just as our family grows and develops.
The recent warm weather has us all outside and mama thinking of Spring knitting projects. I have a cotton pilot cap in mind for N, made from the same cotton as the sweater she’s wearing in these photos. I’m also excited about the Molly Bubble Romper that is no doubt in our future.
For O, I have an extra special project in mind. His days of longies and shorties are quickly winding down. For what may well be his last pair of shorties (tear), a friend and I will be hand-dying yarn with indigo.
Have any of you done this before? Any tips for a couple of first-timers?
The yarn used for N’s Purple Pixie Pants was gifted to us by Shelly. Thank you, Shelly!
