Here's my new soaker yarn. None of them arrived looking remotely like the colors on the website, so I was a little peeved. You aren't seeing the nasty baby caca brown skeins that are being returned. Don't buy "maple syrup" Wool of the Andes of Knitpicks! Ick. These will become shorties to sell on Woollybugs.com.
Here's why the cheeto wool soaker shorts don't work. See all that diaper? They're worthless unless I frog them and try to do something. As you know, it won't be the first modification! Oh, well. Part of the learning curve and the road to pattern design.

What kind of knitting needles are you?
You are bamboo.Warm, cozy, and thoughtful, you take your time and enjoy how things feel, smell, and taste. You love the craft and beauty of traditional things, and you value the comfort and experience of knitting as much as the results. But while you are reveling in your warm cozies, don't get stuck. Warm is wonderful, but so is the whole wide world!

This picture is kinda blurry, so I'll be sure to get some of the Bun wearing them up here soon. I improved this pattern by shortening the ribbed waistband, changing the position of the drawstring, and most importantly adding a gusset for the crotch. I definitely feel that I changed the pattern enough to call it my own. Yay!
The Cheetos shorties (the orange ones), are kind of worthless, as the pattern was intended for pants, and there is not enough covering in the crotch to prevent leaks. I would rip them back and fix that part, but I since I dyed the actual finished shorts and not the yarn, I don't have any left. Lessons learned.
These were knit with Cascade 220 in a color that I am referring to as Wasabi. The legs are really cute. I embellished the ribs with embroidered daisies.
