After reading this thread, I want to make some soakers even though my daughter doesn’t wear cloth diapers. I know that sounds crazy, but with the warm weather upon us, it would be nice for her to have a diaper cover to lounge around in instead of putting on a full outfit. Plus, I think I might try the whole Kool-Aid dyeing thing for the first time, and what better way than on some soakers, eh?
I’m knitting a practice soaker right now. Out of 3 free patterns I printed off the internet, I chose to do the curlypurly one first. This one I’m making out of leftover Patons Classic Merino in Natural. However, I ran out and only had leftover Wool-Ease (only 30% wool, if that). But, that’s OK since this is just a practice soaker! This week I plan to buy some more yarn and some Kool-Aid to use for the next two patterns. This seems like it will be fun!
