Kimono progressing nicely

I had my wisdom teeth pulled this last Friday (yuck!) So under doctor's orders I've been taking it easy this weekend... which translates into quality knitting time! Consequently I've made some great progress on the baby kimono -- it's blocked and drying in the sun as I type.

I also started the matching trousers. I made a small modification to the waist -- I think it's a tubular cast on with a picot edge, (I'm not up on knitting terminology, but it's a tube that will allow me to thread through some elastic. The pattern calls for elastic to simply be sewn onto the inside, but I'd prefer it to be hidden). Here's hoping that I can finish up today, and get back to Shingle for my very patient friend.
