I just tried knitting a soaker keychain. All I can say is, if someone decides to do keychain soakers, don't use worsted! Makes for one UGGLEE little soaker! :LOL

Toothpicks would have made it easier - I wish I had some!

There's NO WAY I could have put cuffs on this thing!

Okay, it's seriously a sickness that I'm sitting here, thinking of using the baby weight yarn and size 2 needles I have to try to knit up a tiny little soaker... :LOL

And of course whomever is able/does choose to do this . . . will display the pics here for us to see???

Wanna donate about 40 of them for MDC?? :LOL :LOL

Oh, and pictures of knitting with toothpicks would be 'educational' as well! :LOL

FYI you can use a size 000 needle and it works great. Mine I have made were about 1.5 in tall. If my arthritis would allow me I would make some for MDC but alas my hands are killing me.

Do you mean like this?

The one on the right is the ugly worsted soaker :LOL

(Disclaimer: I do NOT knit for a living, and this picture would not be appropriately moved to the sewing/crafts board because nobody there asked to see a teeny-tiny soaker)

I KNOW that has to be a language that is NOT OF this earth! :LOL

Okay, get out your and get ready to at me . . . moving this thread to Sewing and Crafts, because contrary to mehndi mama's disclaimer - which is too funny - :LOL this thread has evolved into a S&A thread:

There will be a redirect here . . . no one will miss this thread . . . everyone can still make there way . . . look for a banner or new release in the TP any day for the next round of diaper key chains and then, in a few days . . . SOAKER key chains - anyone have a fiver they can loan me? :LOL j/j

Hey thanks Marni!!! I will definately try some. I really need to finish my Christmas knitting first though. Maybe after the holidays if I can make soaker keychains and have them look nice like yours I can donate them to MDC too.

I split these posts from the other keychain thread and am moving this over to Sewing anc Crafts. This is probably valuable for the archives over there and these posts rightly belong in that forum. There will be a redirect in Diapering.

I made one! It's not done.. I still have to seam it, but it's SOO cute. And it matches the longies I made for my DD, so I'm happy! :LOL Thanks for the directions, Marnie! I adjusted them a little to accomodate my smaller needles, since I don't have any size 3s, and it worked out great.
