Well it’s taken me a bit longer to get back into my pre-pregnancy pants. Maybe it’s because breastfeeding didn’t work out as well as I had hoped, or thE fact I am nearing clinical “advanced” maternal age 😂 but I have been in leggings for about a year, I am not sure if I am going back anytime soon.

It’s a world of comfort, but no dang pockets!

Once again, crochet to the rescue.

I am actually pleased as punch that chain purse straps are coming back. It turned out pretty cute. I wonder if a string of ribbon through the chain would be cute as well.

Of course this pattern is for Plaid Week, but I worked one up in a solid color and I adore it. Isn’t that texture wonderful?

  1. Thank you for the pattern. Aren’t leggings just Awesome , I always said I would never wear elastic waistband but at 65 I really appreciate leggings . I liked my tight fittin jeans. Enjoy your weekend.

    1. Yes! And I have found a brand that is soft, but stretchy, but also kinda offer belly support. It’s hard to go back to stiff pants, haha! Enjoy your weekend as well!
