DIY: high-waisted knit shorts

I'm so proud of this DIY! I knitted the whole thing yesterday evening, and added the finishing touches today. It's funny; because the only thing I've finished knitting before is a scarf, and I've never actually worn it. I couldn't wait to try this one on, though - and skipped my make-up so that I could take pictures of it while it was still daylight. I love it! What do you think? I didn't have a recipe, I just kind of went for it - and that's probably why it turned out so well. I'm no good with recipes and such.
I'm wearing a DIY high-waisted knit shorts, Cubus tights, thrifted top, Vila asymmetric cardigan, Cubus knitted sweater and Roots boots.

  32. Beautiful photoshoot, beautiful model and talented as well))
    This post is a huge inspiration for me, as I'm mostly a knitter who begins a project, gets excited, gets bored a leaves it.
    Cannot believe you made it in 2 days!
    How did you manage to make it without any instruction? Incredible!
