Now 3 FOs...curly purly soaker and soap sweater...added a purse
I made both of these for a swap partner on another forum...

Curly Purly soaker...for a nb...so tiny and sweet..I used 100purewool 1ply that I had dyed (lots leftover from another project) and double stranded it for thickness.



Soap sweater..had fun making this. First time with 4 dpns and it proved a little challenging but i won!!



Hot off the needles...well not really...finished it last night and felted it. Just sewed it together...so hot off the yarn needle LOL. This pattern is called Origami Purse and I got it a lys. The yarn is noro...not sure about the colorway but like the fo. The yarn is scratchier than I had hoped. But I like it overall.

That soaker is adorable! I found that soap sweater pattern on Ravelry and sent it to my aunt- who immediately made a whole bunch! Have you used it yet? They're really great, a lot softer than I thought it would be. I can't wait to make my own. Great job!
