All they needed was a grafted gusset and a second eye stitched into the back. Oh, and the elastic put in, but that is the easiest bit. I had put them aside several months ago because I didn't think Austy would get any wear out of them since they would have fitted him the best over summer, which was far too hot for longies. But last night we had another soak through. Austy's Dad has misplaced a pair of his woollies leaving me a pair short, so instead he had PUL on last night. And tonight I am washing every sheet, every blanket and even the mattress got wet - there was so much that didn't get caught by the nappy that it a lot ran down over the mattress protector and soaked into the mattress protector at the side. So these might be slightly too short for him (they were made to fit him LAST winter) but they will do the job and keep him dry until I can get another pair whipped up. Extra large is not fun to knit though. Give me newborn longies any day. If only we could toilet train him at night as well... we're only just getting the hang of the day training though.
Please excuse the dodgy pics - I give up waiting for sunlight now as it's dark every night when I get home and it would mean no blog posts till the weekends if I was too fussy about my photographs. And don't look too closely at my knitting stitch embroidery either - I'm still getting the hang of it. I think these would have been better with the face stitched into the knitting using a fair isle technique instead.
