Surprisingly I've been knitting quite a bit this summer. Even though it's so hot out and a fast-paced motion mixed with wool isn't always appealing, I've also been watching lots of movies. Thus, I need something to do during them!I've been wanting to knit something out of my favorite baby knitting book, "Vintage Baby Knits" by Kristen Rengren for a long time, I just couldn't settle on a project. When I ordered my sweet harmony needles for my birthday, I snagged a few cheap skeins of Wool of the Andes in Iris Heather off KnitPicks. I knew this color & amount would be perfect for a wool soaker for the lady!
Knitters: Although my daughter usually 'wears her size' in clothing, I found that the 9-12 mo size for the soaker was a perfect fit for my 16 month old ladybug. I should have tried it on her before going back to garter stitch with the middle ('bottom') ribbing, but didn't. Practice makes perfect.
Stay tuned: Lukka's Christmas sweater is in full force production and will be my vacation knitting, I'm almost done with the back already!
