Doodle Pants

...so on Friday I bravely started my first project, Aubrey Doodle Pants for my muse Nina. I found the pattern through the Ravelry website, which ROCKS! I've had a few issues to tackle. Firstly, failing to get my head around the difference between metric, imperial, and US needle sizes resulted in my ribbed waist band being knitted with larger rather than smaller needles. I had to learn how to knit a short row and do kitchener stitch with the help of videos on youtube. Now that I am almost finished the first leg, I can't wait to start another project.


  1. How do you stay inspired to continue knitting? I would go into knitting fits and do a lot, then I lose interest.. partly because my arm starts to hurt. I do need to finish a baby blanket, though, I just can't seem to get into the swing of it...

  2. I'm sorry to hear that you're going to have to cut Nina's leg off.
    Will be hard for her at first...but with such a beautiful pant to wear, she'll get used to it soon.

  3. I can't believe you are such a fast knitter - that would have taken me seven weeks! amazing.
