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.

The soaker is so cute!! I had never seen the soap sweater before… a cute and great idea :thumbsup:

Nice work! That soaker is adorable!

Darn cute soaker~!! What a great idea !!!

Both look great!

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!

they both look great!!

That soaker is adorable, i love those colors. The soap sweater is a great idea, i need to go look up the pattern too :slight_smile:

Thanks you all!!

I haven’t used the soap yet. That is for a gift…great idea though…I should go make me one :happydance: Maybe this time I won’t fight so much with those pesky 4 dpns.

here’s the link to the pattern for ya.

What cute projects! I just love the yarn you selected for each item!

You know, I have the soaker pattern and was a little iffy about making it. I didn’t like the way it looked when not on a baby, so I didn’t think I’d like it ON a baby if you know what I mean. But seeing yours…I think I’ll try it as soon as I get some decent wool. Somehow I don’t think cotton or synthetic will work as an absorbable soaker :stuck_out_tongue:

I made soakers for my son, what a memory flash yours gave me. Little bugger was allergic to (then new) disposable diapers, so we used cloth and soakers.

Love the color, and really like the purse colorway also.

:inlove: love the purse…the colors are great!!

Everything looks very nice! The little soakers are so cute!

what’s a soaker? I’m guessing baby undies??? In lieu of diaper? over cloth diapers? over disposable diapers? for bathing or swimming? It’s cute!

I especially love the soap sweater!
