Looks good to me!! If you're standards are too high, your knitting will never be good enough. Consider any flaws to be design features.

And this not-so-perfect soaker is supposed to absorb, um, urine, right? Nobody's gonna look too closely! :rofling: Ahem, sorry, I couldn't resist!

I think it looks wonderful!

Ooh, I love it!!!

I'm not brave enough to try a soaker yet...

It looks great to me, but if you have spots you don't like, the dark yarn will cover them anyway.

Congrats on finishing your first soaker!

Listen to Ingrid!! There are no flaws, rather design features AND you did a great job Knitting is a journey in which you learn a LOT along the way, I just began a year and 1/2 ago and have learned just a wee bit of knitting....I want to know it all..NOW...LOL, but I find that I learn something new all of the time...that's what's so much FUN about knitting...a continual learning experience
