The most beautiful longies/capris I've ever made :)

I hate to toot my own horn, especially since nothings selling right now, LOL! But I have to say that the longies/capris I will be posting tonight are (IMO) the most beautiful thing I've ever made. I single crocheted these small longies/capris from the top down in a brand new pattern I created for these which of course is designed to accomodate the cloth diapered babe. I used 8 full ounces of scrumptious Gaia Organic Merino bulky yarn. I first worked it up in its undyed and and unsoaked natural state in single crochet. I then soaked the longies to allow the yarn to bloom (fluff up) creating an even more dense "bulletproof" fabric. Then (and this is the really fun part) I hand painted them like a watercolor landscape painting! It was so much fun! I LOVE how they turned out!!! The have pretty lacey ruffle detailing at the bottom too... I have no little girl to put them on, and it seems silly to frame longies. So I am setting them up for auction in the cart. They will be closing when we get back from our trip on the 13th. I hope some one loves them as much as I do so I can ship them out when I get home! Anything purchased between now and then will be shipped when we get back :)
