Kaye: If you knit me these, I will wear them. (photo attached)
Mahaila: you are crazy!!
I wasn't sure if she was actually going to do it, especially because of her reaction, but I was stoked when I received this email:
Mahaila: I've started your shorts and its definitely going to be a challenge.....
I started sending mahaila photos of knitted shorts. I was sending photos of different colours (like this one) and, as months went on, the ways that other bloggers had styled them.

When mahaila was in Australia, she was frantically knitting away to get my shorts done in time for Christmas. On Christmas day, I unwrapped the legs of a pair shorts with the knitting needles attached. This only heightened my excitement and I put them on so that mahaila could see if they were the right size. Perfect fit.
That is the last I have seen of my knitted shorts............ let me tell you I am so bloody excited for when those things arrive on my doorstep from Germany. In the mean time, I will excite you with some more knitted goodness. I've posted about Sandra Backlund's work previously. Her stuff is ah-mazing. These are some of my favourite images from all of her previous collections.

Mahaila will be the one to tell you guys just how much of a challenge this has been for her. Hopefully soon I'll have those woolly little shorts around my bum and I can take some shots of my outfit. Not sure how I'm going to style them yet.... so many possibilities!!
