A Froggy Hippy Hippy Snap

A gift for an online friend who's expecting a baby girl:

The nitty gritty:
flannel outer
killington flannel hidden (*love* this stuff!)
cotton velour inner
Aplix closures
lay-in contour soaker of terry topped with matching cotton velour (not pictured)

I hope she likes it!

My New Favorite Soaker

I have a new favorite soaker pattern--the Frantic Mama Soaker from Crazy Hat Lady. It's so easy to knit (gotta love pure mindless knitting for sleep deprived mommy brain), and it looks absolutely adorable on K.

(Pardon the "flashy" photos--I'm no photographer, and it's really hard to take a decent pic in winter in MI.)

Pattern: Frantic Mama Soaker (pdf)
Yarn: Wool of the Andes in Winter Night and Tomato (I think that's what the red was called--long since lost the ball band)
Needles: Knit Picks 16" circs, sizes 3 and 5 (plus a 24" circ in size 4 for the flat knit portion of the crotch--my gauge is looser knitting flat)
Mods: None
