Thank you. That was a very sweet thing to say! I pulled my waistband from this sock pattern (ravelry link). It's very similar to this hat pattern as well (also on my to-do list). I'm visually creative, but alas, I completely lack the mathematical skills to work from scratch, so I often use multiple pattern pieces.

Absolutely adorable!

I have to admit that we are a sposie family but I've been thinking lately that soakers are just way too adorable not to put on my children. Do you think that there are many sposie babies out there that wear soakers for looks?

Married to DH 7 years and have three fantastic kiddos! DS 6, DD 4, and DS 2 ...... lo and behold another is on the way!

Again, those are just stunningly adorable--better than Hanna, I'd say. You are really giving me a lot of "out of the box" ideas, lately!

I wouldn't say there are "many" sposie babies wearing soakers, but I definitely know there are some! I think it would be practical, too, especially at night. I remember sposies did leak on occasion and the wool soaker would be great to have over top of it!

Those are amazing, mama! I caught a glimpse on Rav today, but was caught up in something else or I'd have fave'd them for sure! I admire your creativity!

Thank you. I'm glad to give ideas. I figure if we're going to spend hours making it anyway, why not embellish it a bit too?

Thank you. I do actually squeal when I see knitted things that take my fancy. I've made my own babies cry while nak'ing. :

Thanks! The leaf edging is actually really fast. This second pair is just zipping along for me.

Thank you. Her sister (3.5) is already demanding that I make her a big soaker. I told her that she used to have nice soakers, and that I'm making her some socks right now, but she's harping on the soaker.

Hanna Anderson
I used to get their catalog, and back then things were really colorful, lots of bright flowers and embroidery, this soaker just made me think of the tights that sold in the catalog.

I've sort of finished my second one, but sans decoration:

I was planning on applique'd leaves, but I canNOT find the ball of green that I used for the waistband, so.... when I do, I'll add the leaves.

Thank you so much!

I didn't feel talented yesterday. I found the ball of green, knitted the leaves, and then had no idea where to place them. I finally threw it at my dh and told him to tell me where they should go.
