I was able to get a head start on the September Project for the Knit Picks Knitter's Almanac Knit Along. Nether garments, as designed by Elizabeth Zimmerman are more like leggings, but I have adjusted these to make something I know my 19-yr old son will wear.....sweat pants. This is actually alot easier than leggings because I do not have to worry about the increases from the ankle to the thigh. I have finished one leg and just started the second. I am a little worried about how to do the crotch and joining for the hip. I hope I can figure it out. I am so glad I am knitting with cotton as the temperature has been in the 100's this past week. Working with wool or alpaca would have been unbearable.
On a personal note: It looks like it will take a little longer to say good-bye and have a funeral for my dear cousin. She had one of the rare opportunities, in her 40's, to receive a landmark pancreas-kidney transplant, which added over 10 years to her life. She agreed to have doctors study her after her death, in order to learn from this transplant. I am so proud of her for consenting to do this. This will allow for future successful transplants that will give people with juvenile diabetes hope and a quality of life. What a great gift to the world!
