Woo hoo! I got to test knit yet another pattern for Melanie of
Adorabubble Knits and The Knitting Siren . This is her Sideways Britches pattern which is very unique. It was a little tricky at first until I figured out which direction I was headed. You start at the center back and work your way around the hips and front until you're back to the beginning. There are alot of provisional cast on stitches, but the nice thing is that there is no seaming. Did you catch that? No seaming!!
I used Lamb's Pride worsted in the Blue Skyways color. I've never worked with this yarn before, but it reminds me of Peace Fleece. It's pretty soft, but it feels like it will work well for a soaker. I still have to lanolize them, so it will be interesting to see what happens after they're washed.
Of course, the real test will be the fit. It just might be a real good excuse to go visit the grandsons!
