New Doodlepants for My Little Shortypants

Pattern: Aubrey Doodlepants
Yarn: Peace Fleece, Zarya Fog colorway (Love this yarn!)
Needles: US size 5 and 7 16" circs, US size 7 40" circ (magic loop on the legs)
Modifications: added an eyelet row to the ribbing for the drawstring; added a batch of graduated short rows right after the waistband (a la Elizabeth Zimmermann); added crotch gusset (increased from four stitches to 14 stitches)

Hi Kelley! I saw your intro post on the loom knitter group and couldn't resist taking a peek at your blog. (I love blogs!)
I started out using the KK last fall but I'm just not satisfied! I've always wanted to needle knit and never could get past casting on. I decided to try again on Sunday and I have managed to half finish a dishcloth using the stockinette stitch. I would love so much if you would share your favorite tips or sites with me. I will be back to visit your blog and will most likely add you to my own blogroll. I hope that is okay! :)
In Him,
Joyful Mom

Hi, Amy. My favorite site for knitting information and demos is www.knittinghelp.com. The online magazine Knitty (www.knitty.com) has some really good articles and tutorials too.

And, yes, feel free to add me to your blogroll. I'm glad you enjoyed my blog.

Sharp pair of longies :) That is such a nice PF color. I bet it won't show a speak of dirt. I do my short rows EZ fashion as well -- it was the only way I could "wrap" my mind around it (no pun intended). The crotch gusset looks perfect.
