Shorts by Made With Moxie

I was lucky enough to be able to test The Moxie Girls new shorts pattern (click to see her blog). The pattern is called Prefontaine Shorts. I made TWO pair for my toddler in no time at all. I got to work last night before bed and by the time I finished my coffee this morning I had finished TWO pair. I needed to wait to finish them this morning because he had to be awake to size the elastic on his waist.

I am not an amazing sewer (seamstress? thread operator?)...so my first pair were a "test". I always do a test run before sewing something. But, BOTH pairs ended up being very wearable. My son is actually wearing them. Usually it takes some coaxing to get Izzy to like something I have made.

I made my first pair in Go Diego Go fabric. I have had it for a while...waiting for something special. The second pair was made out of zesty monster truck cotton with green trim.

Thank you Made With Moxie! I loved the project and cannot wait to make more.

I knitted a hat! All Day Beret

At this rate I will need to change the name of the blog. LOL I have been all about knitting this past month. This pattern was a gift along with the yarn. (Bamboo Ewe). I kind of messed up in the first transition. But, I learned alot and I am going to attack the pattern again with grey yarn.
