Soaker Pants

Ah, it's good to be getting back to blogging. I've been a bit busy getting back into the groove of things after the Rose City Yarn Crawl, which was awesome! I had so much fun and sold so much yarn! A big thank you to everyone who came out for the event!

Anyway, back to what's on the needles. I finished off these soaker pants (rav link) awhile back. 

I knit them for my cousin's new baby out of some delicious handspun I found last summer. It is 3 different strands of shetland wool plied together and then dyed. This yarn is odd because in some lights it is purple and others it turns out blue. The wool comes from the lady who spun and dyed it all in the Salem area. I was really impressed! It's perfect for soaker pants, since it is a nice hardy wool. The farm is Goat Knoll Farms and it looks like she will be at a lot of the same shows as me, so I may just have to get some more yarn!
