I have about given up on ever snagging a MM soaker so help me out mamas. My DS hates wool shorts and cries and pulls at them whenever we put them on him. He however doesn't seem bothered by soakers. The problem is I only have two. I have never really found knitted soaker that I


So mamas tell me what is your favorite WAHM soaker and why? Links would be helpful as well.

TIA

Well, this isn't gonna help you much, but BBB are truly exceptional! And MM uses the Fern & Faerie soaker pattern, so you can check the site for other WAHM's that use that pattern. Oh..and KSS is also off of the F&F pattern, too, I believe. Umm..let's see. I've got an LTK soaker that I really like. One from HSY is a good fit too! What are the soakers you have now made of? Maybe it's the yarn that he's having trouble with and not necessarily the shorts! Oh..Mr. Peabody's are awesome too, although I haven't tried her soakers, just pants and shorts! I've heard that the Wooly Wonder Everlasting soaker is great too. That's next on my list of "want to trys"!

Good luck mama!!

I don't have that many soakers I have a ton of shorts and am now starting to think that I may need some soakers for really hot days. I love my KIYP soaker right now but they as hard to grab as MM. I would love to have a MM and BBB but don't know if I will ever snagg one. I scored my KIYP off the TP and keep watching it for others. I also have one from GMWW that I like.

Crap, I forgot about Meredith from Knitwitz. I second her, she ROCKS! One of the most amazing mamas I have ever met and her knitting is flawless. She does some wicked sets.

And I have been watching Kellie's stuff at Whimsical Fairies and it looks good. Better than good! All of them are knit from the F&F pattern which is one of the best.

Tiskin's Trousers is my new favorite! I have longies crocheted by Aleshia. She is an MDC mama. (Tiskin) She does a really awesome job! I have a NB soaker, too, which looks amazing (I haven't been able to use it, yet, though 'cause we're still TTC) & one ordered for Katie. She uses buttery soft HPY, which is the nicest I've felt! AND she is REALLY reasonably priced!
