UPDATE: My progress with the Fickle Sense knitted shorts. I need help!

Here is the update on the Fickle Sense knitted shorts......

Short Front
I have committed the most basic of knitting crimes... I have run out of yarn. I had the idea of knitting this second pair of shorts a few years ago and since then the yarn that I bought is discontinued:( I have visited all of the yarn stores in Berlin and have searched the net..... with no luck:( I think I only need one more ball of yarn. Can anyone help?

Yarn: GGH, Big Easy. Colour: royal blue #18. 

At the moment the current solution is to start the ribbed waistband with a yarn of the same size (5-6) and similar colour, which I have found at the Berlin knitting store knit knit.  This version of shorts will have to be the Hip version. I will probably knit the high waisted version with another colour... thinking of knitting a  burgundy version.

Fingers crossed my solution works! 

Short Back

The famous 'mahaila knitted shorts' are back!

Remember my 'mahaila knitted shorts?' 

Back in 2011, as a challenge I created this pattern and knitted my sister these shorts. Since then, I have had many inquiries from fellow knitters requesting the pattern for my mahaila knitted shorts. And the good news it that I am actually getting around to knitting another pair, with the aim of writing the exact pattern down and sharing it! 

This is how Kass styled the knitted shorts in Aus.

So, I am slowly knitting the shorts and these will hopefully be ready for June! This time I have picked a 100% cotton Royal Blue yarn!

Hopefully I can reach my June deadline. I will keep you updated!
