I crocheted this wool soaker for my son, I didn't plan to do Star Trek, I found this red yarns from my stash.  After I finished the body, my husband said it looked like Superman Panties.  Then I thought maybe I could add blue yarns around the waist and leg openings.  But I didn't want to spend $$, so I looked at my stash, I found my favorite Jo Sharp Yarns, it is dark gray.  And my husband was watching Star Trek, then I thought it is perfect to make a Star Trek Soaker.

I used Aunt Lydia's thread to make the logo.  It is silver, but it looks like white in the pics.

Here is the link for the pattern of the soaker:

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Ha!  I love those. 

I have to ask a silly question: wool on baby skin: itchy?  must be ok, otherwise you wouldn't have used it.

Most babies are doing great with wool, but some babies are sensitive to wool.

Just make sure the wool yarn you got not too rough.
