New FO - Cutie Longies

(Busy weekend with no posts. Sorry!)

I just finished weaving in the ends on these longies and HAD to show you!!

Only one picture here (because they take forever to load!). You can see more over on my project page.

I had so much fun with these. I haven't knit any longies/shorties since Lovey was about 6 months old. They knit up sooo fast, especially now that my knitting skills have improved. It's amazing how much a year's worth of practice can really speed up your knitting.

I am calling these "done", but I have every intention of embellishing them with something very girly. If they were in a "gender neutral" colorway, I might not. But as they are very obviously dark purple and pink I think they need a very obvious girly embellishment.....like a flower? Or heart? Or pink stars? We'll see.

And the yarn! Oh the yarn! I love this Malabrigo. It almost looks navy in the pictures. I assure you it is not. It is a deep, vibrant violet. I love it.

What are you knitting?
