Yesterday I got a comment about my machine knit longies pattern/tutorial. I answered, and wanted to include a link to a brown newborn soaker I made for a give away/charity auction. However, in scrolling through my blog, I can't find the post. I know it's just a small little thing, plain old brown, not very exciting...but still, I like to post about everything I make!
This is in Patons Classic Wool, and is based on the Dandelion Dreamer pattern that I've shown before. I think I handknit this; it's really quick and a nice portable project. The icord I made on the machine though :) It is a really easy pattern to adapt to the machine though, the biggest key is figuring out which part of the crotch you're working on, I think on the machine you do the opposite direction on the gusset (and you have to work out how many rows you need for the measurement given in the flap). Any interest in a more detailed tutorial?
