First Knitted Wool Soaker

Here is my first soaker. I'm glad I'm finally able to make my own. I really want to make gender specific soakers, but for now plain white will have to do. The legs are not finished yet. I'm waiting to know the sex of the baby before I add them, and too dye it. I have lots of soaker making ahead of me. I have to get Karina's soakers and my own soakers made. I can't wait till I can add some designs too the back of them :)
Also, If you have any other free soaker pattern sites I could check out just leave it in the comments section..thanks so much.
I got this pattern at here

Oh I love the soaker. I would love to learn how to knit. I am sure I could figure it out...I crochet, but I have never tried knitting. I would love to make more soakers for Alyssa. Great Job!!!

Great job! I remember my first soaker, it makes you feel good doesn't it? This turned out really cute. It will be neat to see it all finished with the legs you add on!
I made this soaker for ch and m and it knits up pretty easy on straights.

I haven't made this one from Fern and Faeire, but I've heard good reviews on it, there is a round and straight pat here.

The soaker looks great. I think soakers are fun because they are a pretty quick knit.

A couple of other links that I have are as follows:
