these pants were knit sometime in '08, when greta was but an oven bun. these are the blue blog's baby bell bottoms (free pattern!). these are modified in that i knit them with dk weight yarn and added length at the top to accommodate cloth diaper bum. (i kind of gave up on the whole wool soaker business, but before i did, these pants did get lanolinized and while we aren't using them as a diaper cover in and of themselves, they work really well as an extra layer of protection.)
i can't speak for greta, but i think it must be awfully nice to have soft woolly pants this time of year. whenever i think that's it's impractical to knit a bunch of baby stuff, the nasty cold temps help make me feel pretty useful.
you can see that the yarn on these is starting to pill, which kind of bums me out, but hey, i guess it means that she's getting a lot of wear out of something that i made with my hands, before i even knew her at all, at that makes me feel pretty good.
