One unhappy baby in cute sweater pants.

Fortunately, all other aspects of this project went better than photographing these pants on the baby. These have been in the works for a long time; I started knitting them when I was pregnant, then got bored and wanted to finish things she’d wear first, and I finally picked them back up recently and finished them off. They are made from this longies pattern out of Knitpicks Swish yarn, back when it came in a multi pattern, with two solid Swish colors at the bottoms of the legs because I was going to run out of the multi.  I won’t use them as true longies (like, as a diaper cover) because they are made of washable wool, and because I’m kind of entrenched in my BumGenius routine anyway. These are just for warmth and cuteness. The fit is just adorable and the pattern worked up nicely. I may undo the cuff ribbing and add another stripe when she gets taller because I think the waist and bottom would stretch to fit her for a while if the length were increased. They are so soft and cozy; I want to snuggle her all the time!
