A friend thought she wouldn't be able to have another child, and
was so very excited to be pregnant with a precious little girl.
I was just learning to knit, so I did an Internet search for wool soakers. I found the cutest free pattern from tinybirdsorganics.
The nursery was decorated with pink and chocolate
brown, so when I found this merino wool I knew it was the
perfect gift - I believe it was Patons and called 'Rosewood'
It turned out wonderful, but if I had it to do over again, I would
make it much smaller. I might have started by reading the BIG
BOLD line that says it is for a size large soaker for babies 12
months or older *laugh*
I would also branch out from the pattern and try increases and
decreases that would look exactly the same on both sides. The
pattern ends up with one side sloping smoothly and the other
being more of a stair step. You can see that in the WIP photo.
I'm now on to a few more projects, as I've got the knitting bug!
