Arrow Custom-fit handknit wool soakers - nb/sm custom slot open with curacao colorway

I just got a skein of this:

There is more than enough for a pair of nb or small longies. This was the ONLY skein they had so I had to grab it. It is just soft and gorgeous and I can't wait to knit it up.

Hello, Mamas and Papas! Want a wool soaker but haven't seen one that has grabbed your eye and said "take me home"? Well, have I got an option for you! I would be happy to make you a soaker to fit your baby's measurements.

Soaker options*:
shorties - $30
longies - $40
skirts - $40
pull-on covers - $25

Add on $10 for reversible soakers.

I can do stripes**, ruffles, and some embroidery to embellish your soaker. I can make blue jean soakers, reversible soakers... This list will grow as I test new decorative designs.

I currently have on hand: jungle green, variegated blue, and a limited amount of heather pink, hot pink, ice pink, lime green, red, periwinkle, dark brown, burgundy, and purple. However, I am more than happy to visit my local yarn store if there is a specific color you had in mind that I don't have on hand.

I plan to order some more yarn colors from peace fleece later this week, so if you want a custom soaker out of peace fleece... pm me soon so I know what colors to get.

Also, for the budget minded, if your baby outgrows the soaker I made for you, I will offer you a discount on the next size up if you mail it back to me.

My turn around time between receiving measurements and finishing the soaker is approximately 2days, usually much less, except for reversible soakers. All soakers are shipped via priority mail on Saturdays, usually arriving that Monday. I can only accept payment via funded paypal at this time. For shipping to Canada, add $5 (this is *strictly* to cover the extra postage for shipping Priority to Canada vs. the states), unless you want it shipped first class.

The yarns I normally use:
Lamb's Pride
Reynolds
Debbie's Bliss

The yarn store by my house also has colorways (most notably Malabrigo), for those who prefer it.

See some of my soakers and their happy wearers (watch this gallery grow!):

*prices based on amount of yarn required
**price may vary from those listed depending on how many skeins required.
