Since I am usually knitting up items for my little girls, it is fun to occasionally make boyish knits. And when a good friend is expecting a baby boy and planning on cloth diapering, it is the perfect opportunity to knit up some boyish shorties!
This time I tried out a new pattern: Mama's Favorite Longies by fellow Texan Annie Soutter. I also tried out a new yarn - Peace Fleece - one well know for it's awesomeness as a diaper cover wool.
I really loved the pattern, it was very easy to follow and would be a great first longies pattern for a new knitter. The Peace Fleece was also great - love it's wooliness! It is much rougher than some of the more mainstream yarns, but after washing is softens up.... but stays strong for rough and tumble little boys!
This colorway is called Grass Roots... and it is brownish with a green undertone. The multi-colored flecks make it perfect for pairing with brightly colored boys' t-shirts. These shorties used a little less than one 4oz hank of Peace Fleece.
