And now for one massive knitting update post. Most of these were knitted either at Okoboji in June or in Utah in July.


Ottobre Designs soaker, made with my own adaptations. Peace Fleece yarn. (Okoboji)




 Longies made from the 1932 soaker pattern. Moda Dea Cartwheel yarn. (Utah)


Pink soakers

Itchy Fingers pattern. The math is a bit nonsensical at the beginning of the pattern, but I really, really like these shorts. Moda Dea Cartwheel yarn, paired with some solid pink from Knitpicks. (This was actually done at home.)


Soaker in use

 Belladonna Designs nighttime shorts. I was very disappointed in this pattern, which I paid for. The pattern has no gauge. What the…? Yeah, so they came out too small. (done at home before Utah.)




So then I just redid the pattern a bit to suit me. Love it now. Peace Fleece yarn. (Home before Utah.)




 I’m not super thrilled with these shorts, though it’s the yarn and not the pattern, I’m sure. The fabric just isn’t thick enough. Spare Ribs Shoaker. Patons Classic Wool Merino. (Home before Utah.)



Aubrey Doodlepants pattern, a really basic longies pattern that’s a standby around here. Patons wool yarn again.  (Utah)
