Reading While Knitting

Nothing complicated; nothing too exciting, but yes, I do knit while I read. As well as during many other domestic activities.

They grow so fast.

That's what we're always being told, and sometimes finding out for ourselves.

The diaper covers? After a good try-out of both, they're clearly too small.

And they have to be lanolinized more evenly than I managed. If the lanolin gathers in spots, they become dirt attractors. Add a meal of black beans eaten by hand? Dirty cover.

Both of these things are discouraging, especially since I performed a knitting feat that I don't indulge in lightly. Intarsia.

I've started a plain one from this pattern in a very dark wool. Lessons learned!

Maybe you could put her on a diet?

live and learn! *I* think it's adorable! I was a scrooge/crank and saved the soakers (once M. was on solids) for nighttime. The lanolin took me awhile, too. You probably are doing this, but I melted it in the microwave with a small amt. of very hot water, and then slowly added cooler water before soaking. I never noticed spottiness... And I loved how soft my hands were afterwards (even if I did smell like a sheep). :)

They're okay so long as they don't get dirty. *lol*

I made one for friends of ours ... I don't know how it faired though. I never asked.

Darn it! Why is it always the really cute things that don't work? :0) I wish I had known about these earlier... I'm just about to pack in the cloth diapers in our house.

Oh, it's so cute! But I guess there are risks any time you put something knit on something as powerful as a baby bottom...
