Here's what I've done so far:
I was going to make longies but I think these will end up being shorties or capris because it's only 1 3.5 oz. skein.
I'm stuck right now until Mandie can help me with my gusset error. LOL
I did a ribbed waist after ripping out my attempt at a drawstring waist. Ribbed is much easier. I couldn't figure out the thumb cast on that's needed for the drawstring waist. BUT short rows aren't as hard as everyone seems to think they are!! I followed Mandie's tutorial on her blog and it was easy. THANK YOU Mandie for writing that tutorial!!
This just points to how weird I am. LOL The simple things (like switching to larger needles and the thumb cast on) I find difficult but a "hard" thing such as short rows are easy!! *sigh*
