Woo Hoo!

Finished the trousers!












Yes my faithful readers, there were many cryptic steps like "Stitch as shown." and sew forth.









But I pressed ahead and now they are fit to be tried. On that is.












Oh, and somebody here said the material was so nice it should be made into unmentionables. We shall not speak of this further.

Thanks Grace! It was a lot more fun than I imagined it would be. Tonight I start on the frock coat.

Gee Peg, it wasn't really that hard. Certainly not as hard as say, childbirth or something.

Oooh, very nice. Does this mean you're ready to quit your day job and become a tailor? 'Cause I have a whole bunch of stuff that wants fixing.

Bob Collier said...

Sorry. It looks like you'll need to learn to sew. And yes, I understand that is apostasy for a knitter. Deal. :)

I knew you were good at panting! Glad to see pics of you and your family.

Kate Christ said...

No, no, lots of knitters sew. Erin and Nathania both sew. Theoretically, it sounds great. I just suck at it.

Oh My God It's Mark! Are you wearing any pants? By the way I am about to start FROCKING. Just thought you and the missus would like to know.
