i made one of those last year for ds2's doll and it was really fun to make. i wanted to start off on something that i couldnt destroy and/or wouldnt get totally frustrated with, and it was a perfect first project.
share your yarn colors! i dont know if i have anything right now that i want to use for that. i have some yarn for another soaker but am holding off starting it.
i did knit a bunny for ds2 last week. he didnt felt all the way though..i thought the washer/dryer took care of that, but apparently not. i have been super careful with my soakers, but im not sure i have to be now.
