It got a little squished up, but I think after blocking it should be okay.

Diaper Cover Experiment

So this is the diaper cover I was mentioning the other day. I still haven’t sewn in all the ends as I’m debating whether or not to just save it as in or rip it out and re-do it with more room in the butt. I also haven’t decided on how to close it up yet. I’m thinking snaps, but I still need to find the right kind.

For those of you wondering, “diaper cover?” I do cloth diapering with Little Man, and absolutely love it. Cloth diapering is much easier these days than it was with our moms, and wool diaper covers (or soakers) are one of my later discoveries. I rarely have a problem with leaks, and they don’t get smelly, plus you have to admit, they are much cooler than a pair of boring and expensive disposables!

I frequently use the http://www.littleturtleknits.com diaper cover patterns (sorry, I’m still figuring out how to make a link) but thought it would be fun to try my own.

The yarn is from http://www.handpaintedyarn.com nd is very soft. It’s just their regular handpainted wool.

Let’s see if this one comes up!

This is my messed up Anouk, whihc I was attempting to post last summer when I got my camera. Let’s just say that I had a MAJORLY different image in my mind of this dress and didn’t really pay attention to the first line of the pattern very well.

It still turned out cute, but as an apron, not a dress!

And she’s back!

To put it simply, the last few months have been quite a rollercoaster!! Life is good, but it sure can get crazy. Add to that my frustrating computer problems and I decided to take a break for awhile. But, I’m back, ready again to try to get some pictures posted to this blog so its not just me rambling on about what I’m knitting without anyone being able to see it (which is one of my favorite parts about blogging in the first place!:-)

I’ve had tons of knitting time with winter break. Socks, diaper covers, and my Color by Color scarf are keeping me busy right now. I’m especially excited about the diaper covers. I’m making my first attempt at designing my own and finished up a sample cover yesterday. I think it turned out pretty good, but it’s too small for the Little Man (who STILL is not potty trained 😦 I think if I add some short rows to the butt it might be a pretty good fit!

Check back soon in the next week or so. I’m hoping that I can get some pictures posted up here.
