Bunny soakers!!!

Catchy title, huh?

Ok, so here is the pair of soakers that I made for Miss Elizabeth, modelled by the lovely Hermione:

Pattern: Fern and Faerie pattern

Yarn: Plymouth Encore in pink

Needles: US 8

Mods: I did a hemmed edge at the top and put in elastic instead of the ribbing and a "rolled brim" on the legs instead of the ribbing. Can't you tell how much of a fan of ribbing I am? :-P

These were SUPER quick to knit (like a full day) and are knit in the round, which helps with the quick part.

Granted, they are a plain Jane pair, but once I check size, she will be to hippest girl on the block. Fair Isle here I come!!

BTW, check out Leigh's blog. This is how it happens people, I swear!!

Those are very cute! I don't think the rolled brim will matter much at all. I'm starting to hate the ribbing too!

Great link too...ha ha!
