FO: Soaker
My SO's grandson is now ten months old and needed a new wool soaker for the summer. Click here for my post that reports my adventures in dying the wool. I'd never dyed before, and am happy to tell you that it's like anything else. Just do it.

I finished knitting the punk rock knitters soaker in June...





...and gave it to my SO's daughter when she visited with the baby. Yesterday, she sent me photos!

Your soaker is just adorable, as is the little model. Do you remember how many rows you put on the cuffs, and did you start to pick up from the inside or outside?

Such lovely colors! I am so inspired. We don't have blue koolaid around here, I have to get it out of state. I just made some rainbow koolaid dye with a knitpicks bare skein. Now I know what to make with it. A friend is due in October so I better get busy!!!
