I haven't knit one but I know that evie pants has a soaker section. I just don't have much need for them living in the frigid north.

I love the eviepants way of knitting soakers. You could always put short shorties under instead.

Re: KAL ~ cables! May 6-12

Great stuff. Love the toys and the stitch markers are cute. Haven't gotten much knitting done, but some outside projects are done and I finally repotted a bunch of plants that I got in a basked finally. It has only been 2 and a half months.

Just a quick note. Since the latest stocking date for Kalidescope is the 12th, it bumped it to there on the stocking calendar so you may want to change that if you want it to show up tomorrow.

I have knit the evie pants and the crotch is a bit wide for my liking, I liked the fit of the snap dragon and it's free. I LOVE the curly purly soaker for a stand alone soaker (not good for a skirty). I never knit one but I had one and the fit was awesome..kind of a pain to knit..you have to use tiny needles for the waistband..i tried as a brand new knitter and it didn't go well...probably super easy now though.
