Well, I learned to "knit" (not even pearl) about two years ago, and made a scarf. Then I didn't knit anything until now, and I made these soakers for my little five week old daughter. I used the videos from this site to learn how to do everything...they are very helpful. :-D The original pattern (from www.curlypurly.com
) was to knit in the round, but I didn't have that type of needle so I used straight needles. The pink one is my first attempt (made it with large needles and then felted) and the cream one is more like the original pattern, used smaller needles and it fits better.
