Curly Purly Soakers

I knit two more soakers for my friend at church.

I read on one of the Ravelry groups that it's good to have 5-6 soakers in each size. The addition of these two bring the total I've knit to five in the newborn size. I gave them to my friend last week and she was thrilled.

It turns out I finished just in time too. On Monday, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy weighing just over eight pounds. I probably better get started on some larger sizes.

16" circulars US 3, 5 & 7 and US 3 DPNs

Patons Classic Wool Merino in Denim Marl


Nature Spun Worsted Weight in Salmon
and
Lion Wool in Midnight Blue

  1. She gave birth on Monday? I picked up the finished soaker on Monday and though, "oh I need to get this in the mail." Then I thought, no you need to block this first, you are sending it to a knitter who notices these things. :) I am leaving the computer right now to go and block! Mine will be in the mail by Friday. I made the medium size soaker. How great that she will have enough in newborn size!

  3. Thanks for sharing that pattern. One of my charity groups has been asking for soakers, and this pattern looks perfect.

    Did you lengthen the waist band on the ones you knit?
