My daughter (Campbell) will not wear pants.
No way, no how, will that girl put on a pair of pants, and that includes anything that looks like pants - shorts, overalls, even overall dresses because they kinda look like they might be jeans in disguise. It doesn't matter if they're comfy pants, dressy pants, nada. For her it is skirts or dresses all the time. Even to play outside and ride a bike.
So when Nichole sent me the link for these, I thought - not in a million years. But then Campbell saw the picture, and she was definitely interested. In fact, she swore up and down that if I did indeed knit them for her, she would for sure wear them.
So - I casted on. You may all shake your fingers at me in two months' time when they are finished and she is refusing to put them on.
I'm knitting them out the great new cotton we got recently - Nashua Handknits Creative Focus Cotton DK. The green is for the bottom lace edging (CK wanted hot pink on light pink and I vetoed that for green). Oh - the pattern is Emma's Unmentionables, available on Knitty (see above link).
