nothing exciting

So, I’m in the midst of a lot of Christmas knitting, which doesn’t exactly make for good blog fodder.  I’m never sure who reads this, and I am trying hard not to give anything away.  If you are curious, check out my Ravelry project page.  I don’t know why I bother though, since I’ve already blogged about some of the Christmas presents.  I guess I’m just an enigma.  🙂

In totally blogable projects, I’m making H a new pair of longies.  I miss the days of little H soakers that would only take a night to knit.  Toddler longies just take awhile to knit.

I’d like to try and embroider a train on these, since trains are all the rage here at the moment.  I have never attempted to embroider something so detailed though, and I don’t want to get overly frustrated with the project.  Thoughts?  Suggestions on embroidering knits?

For reference, I mean embroidery like this:

Those are from the amazing Storm in the Attic.

    Is the itchy fingers longies pattern your favorite? Do you make any modifications? Any suggestions? I’ve never knit longies but I’m pretty sure that I’m going to try this out.

      For longies and shorties I like the Itchy Fingers pattern. However, no matter how careful my gauge swatch, they always seem a bit big. It doesn’t bother me, because you can cinch up the waist and fold up the legs. Case in point, H is still wearing longies I made last Nov, even if they are a bit short in the rise. For soakers I’m in love with the Curly Purly pattern.
