Just one more pair of soakers... for now and probably ever... if only I could stop myself... it actually make more sense for me to start making her some longies instead. So even if she gets potty-trained by wintertime, we can still use them as pants.
Yarn: Araucania Nature Wool Chunky in #123. A beautifully golden ochre with a hint of green. A bamboo-ish color I would say.
Verdicts: Very easy pattern, and a really quick knit... Start to finish in just one day. No mods except for the substituting the rovings with yarn,. So how about a little yarn review?
The Araucania Nature Wool is amazing stuff! The kettle-dyed colors are lovely, the yarn is easy to knit with, and softer than other staple wools that I've used, e.g. Cascade 220 or Knitpicks WOTA. And it softens up even more after lanolizing and holds up really well with almost no signs of pillings!!! This yarn has exceeded my expectations for a basic yarn in all ways. It's not merino-ly soft but I wouldn't mind them for next-to-skin wears either. For just $4.69/skein (from WEBS), it's really a steal! Just love it!
Later this week, I'll take you on a tour to my frog pond ;o) and for now, I wish you all a great Mother's Day.
