    I bought 2 yards and it wasn't enough. I actually used the scraps from the side to add to them. It looks funky but he likes them anyways. I should have gotten 2.5 I think. And DH usually wears 30-32 inch length depending on the pants.

    Adorable!!! I've always been scared to make adult clothing, it's just so much materials to have to maneuver!

    I use DPN's all the time, they're kinda awkward at first just like everything else but I don't find magic looping to be any faster than DPN's so I just stick to the method I like the most. The fingerless gloves I did were all done on DPNs You could look for some little circs but you've even have a hard time fitting 32 stitches on the 12" ones. I've heard about some 9" ones but I've never seen any.

    I have some 16's and its a pita for 32 haha Once I get it going, its not so bad.

    I know Im HATING the bamboo circs the pants are on I dont know if its me, maybe Im just knitting them too tight because they dont want to slide super easy on them. I didnt have any issues with the shorter needles, but they are the nickle plated type from knit picks. Im on the hunt for some metal ones now lol Though I can see the bamboo being nice for DPNs lol

    If I wanted to switch the legs to a smaller one, is it a 12"? Im not sure the pattern says, as it gives instructions for magic looping haha

    I'm not a fan of bamboo circs either, it's not just you, the stitches don't slip around enough for me. I think nickel plated are much better for me. I do use bamboo for DPN's though because it that case you don't want the needles to just slip right out lol. Definitely go with a 12" for the legs unless you want to magic loop, then go with a 36" or 40".

    Finish the longies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They are on a 40"! I did an inch on them the other night, and with fighting to slide the needles around, my hands started to hurt LOL thinking I might try to find some metal 12" ones so I can just do them one at a time. Or a 40"..I dont mind the ML'ing at all, but I DO mind having to force stitches around LOL

    I agree, I hate that too, it makes knitting very difficult.

    I'm not allowed to show the colorway until the congo previews go up but I'll post black and whites of the "mystery colorway". It looks way better in full color.

    I made a hat minus the earflaps like the one above for DH but haven't gotten a picture yet, it's just boring black anyways.

    I promise I'm not that fast Virginia, it just looks that way since I don't post some of it until it's finished lol. That sweater took a whole 7 days of weekend and after work knitting!

    Thanks! I think I got like 6 yards of this cheap flannel at Joann, so it should be enough for at least DS and DH. Maybe I can even get a pair! My DH is about the same size pants.

    I try that, but the kids dont' understand the concept of keeping Audrey away from me. Happens when I cook too. I say, "Someone get Audrey out of the kitchen. I'm opening the oven." The response, "Audrey, come here." Sorry Kymi ... but calling your baby sister isn't getting her out of the kitchen. It's just making more noise.

    I've learned to sew with Audrey on my lap. Tricky, but it's working. I hope her having a little sister will keep her occupied enough that I'll get 10 minutes at a shot on my sewing machine.

    It would fit the one that sprays, but you couldnt spray with it on. I do make some for the wet jet though It just has little loops instead of the end covers. and thanks

    They are the same. $8 for the covers. Im working on a new wet jet pattern too so its easier to get on and off

    These are the only things I use to mop with. I have a couple now, as I end up snagging one if I cant find mine, or I keep my seconds haha They are nice to have. just toss in the laundry and they come out nice and fluffy and ready to use again. I had someone buy quite a few, and she even worked out how much you'd save if you used these LOL I need to go find that again and put it in my listings.
