curly purly soaker! w/pic ;)
curly purly soaker

I have decided to switch to cloth diapering and wool soaker, and i finially finished my very first saoker! The yarn isn't the best choicem but it will do I used about80% of a skein of Lambs Pride Worsted, in 'aran'. size 5 and 8 needles (US sizing). I learned how to do a three needle BO just for this project! It turned out good, i forgot to pick up one of the wrapped stitches (from short rows - also a first) and didn't realize i should have knit the waist band with the smaller needles, .. but on the next one, i know what to do




I'll be knitting a few more with peace fleece and 3 ply merino from 100purewool, as well as louet riverstone....I am very excited to be cloth diapering!
(I will add pic's tomorrow, it's soaking right now, i was too excited to get one before i washed it)

very nice indeed!!
I am just finishing the legs on an 'Alice' soaker. I might give the curly purly one a go next, I like the idea of the circular needles.

Great job on the soaker! Was the Curly Purly pattern easy to
follow? I've been thinking about giving it a try....

it was a very easy pattern! i did a lot of it in the car...

a soaker is used over a cloth diaper. it helps absorb and keep clothing dry longer. They are cute on little kids too
