Baby Jeans (or Why I Love LMKG So Much!)

I know I've said it before, but LMKG is a great knitting book.

I give you Exhibit A: (actually it's more like Exhibit M, considering all the things I've made from this book)

A pair of (almost) finished Baby Jeans. I just have to wash and dry them tomorrow (along with all my other laundry I've been neglecting lately), weave in the ends & drawstring, and voila! Baby Jeans. That are machine washable and dry-able. That shrink, fade and soften like real jeans. (At least, that's what it says they'll do!)

Pattern: LMKG Baby Denim Drawstring Pants
Yarn: 2.5 skeins Rowan Denim, Memphis colour
Needles: US 6 / 4mm
Modifications: Only to the drawstring; I did a 4 stitch i-cord instead of 2... I didn't think the 2 looked robust enough.

I'll post an "after the wash" picture tomorrow.

The baby blue jeans are sweet. I can't wait to see them after the wash.

I love that book as well and am forever finding new things from it that interest me...
