Knitting and Baby update in One Post!

The little boy is 10 months old and I have finally finished the knitted Blu jeans (from Knitty!)that I started when...gulp...I was about 7 months pregnant! He's still a bit skinny for them (note the fashionable lowrider look on the back view), but I really like how they turned out.

Pattern: Blu from Knitty
Yarn: Rowan Denim in Nashville (body) and Tennessee (cuffs)
Needles: Addi Turbo #6 -- straight needles could have been used, but I used circs

I liked this pattern, even though it was a lot of stockinette. My only quibble is that the Nashville yarn does stain your hands. It washes off easily, but made the project less portable for me because I was always concerned with walking around with blue fingers if no sink & soap were readily available. But you can't argue with the cuteness of the results (model not withstanding).

I subbed gold embroidery thread for the Mango yarn for the seam stitching.
