Finished the longies! Plus started on Chrissie pressies

The longies are finished, yay! And eventho I made them lots shorter than the pattern said, they're still very much too long for the babe. Good thing I didn't make them as long as they were supposed to be. :) And as a bonus, they're really cute. See, aren't they cute? :)
I ran out of yarn at the waist, so the waistband is knitted with a different yarn. You really can't tell tho, because they are both dyed with similar colors. The pattern was really easy, I'll probably make another pair for next Winter. :)
Pattern: Vilsongit by Sirkku Siiskonen (only in Finnish)
Size: about 86 cm, I think. Thereabouts
Yarn: Novita Wool, Kool-Aid dyed by me, plus a bit of Novita Nalle at the waist
Needles: 3,5mm
Love these!

I've also started working on Christmas pressies, I have three kids to make pressies for, and they will all get something knitted and something sewn. The first thing I've sewn is a raglan blouse, with 3/4 sleeves, it should be anout a size 92cm. It's still missing the elastic at the neck and sleeves, I'll have to remember to take a pic when I've added those. Plus I was thinking that I would want to add an appliqued heart at the hem, haven't decided about that yet..
The second pressie will be an Abigail monster. :) I just think that my version might me a lot smaller than in the pattern, but we'll see how it works out. Here's the very beginning
I think I might need to use a slightly thicker yarn, I'm not sure yet. And that's all I have for now, I hope you've all had a great weekend, and will have a great week!


  1. Teilläkin on tasapainolauta :)) vetää kummasti pieniä puoleensa!

    Iloiset villahousut!

  2. Juu, meilläkin on moinen. :) Tänään on treenattu mäkihyppyä ja nyrkkeilyä ja vaikka mitä. :) Harmi ettei itsellä oikein riitä energiat sen käyttöön.

  3. Mä käytin alussa aika paljonkin, mut sitten tylsistyin. Lapset tykkää edelleen :)

  4. Niin kävi täälläkin, se uutuuden innostus hiipui pikkuhiljaa.. Lapset on innostunu uudestaan. :) Se jooga kyllä tekis ihan hyvää mun selälle, kun vaan ehtis tehdä..

  5. The longies are ADORABLE!!! I can't wait to see the monster.

  6. Dorothy - thanks, I confess that I think the longies are adorable too. :) The monster is going to be so cool, altho it does look a bit small..
