Pea Patch Diaper Soaker

The soakers I originally knit for Silas no longer fit, and we've been mainly using Velcro wraps with his cloth diapers. I decided I'd like to knit some soakers and longies, at least to have a few in consistent use, by next fall. So, here's the first one!
This pattern, the Pea Patch Diaper Soaker, is by one of my Ravelry friends, Michellerene. It's a clever design and knits up fast and easy. I made a size large, and they fit him perfectly. Since I want to have him grow into them, the next one, which I'm about 80% done with, will be an XL.

What's cuter than a baby in wool pants, I ask you? And brown, well, it's quite the appropriate color. Stay tuned for pictures of the next soaker, which have something a little retro added to them.

Nothing is cuter than a baby in wool pants! (especially if mama knit my pattern:D) Hey-- did you see your blog is featured on the Belle of the Ball podcast this week? :)

I heart wool diaper covers! That is why I got bitten by the knitting bug. I wanted to be able to make my own. Great job on your soaker.
