I finished weaving in the ends on Harmon’s “Christmas” pants (Balloon Baby Pants by Ingrid Aartun) on New Year’s Eve Day. I was fairly disappointed in myself for missing my ‘deadline” by almost a week, but the shirt I ordered from the Netherlands to go with his pants still has not arrived so any disappointment I felt was short-lived.
Since finishing, Harmon has worn the pants every day & I’ve washed once & had to shave the pills once. There have been A LOT of pills, too. He’s still a crawling/scooting baby so his bum gets furry fast. I used Quince & Co’s Chickadee Boreal for the main color & Belize for the cuffs because 1) I ran out of Boreal & 2) I thought the pants could use another color. I am already planning a second pair in stripes…this could get addictive. Photography of these pants was difficult owing to the squirmy baby, bad light, and the fact that dark green yarn does not capture well. Sleeping 13-month-olds are easier to photograph, that’s for sure, than awake ones.
This is a wonderful pattern! I love the tall waistband–helps keep his diaper up! Highly recommend this pattern. Joining in with Ginny!
