Stripes!

Another finished soaker.
Yes, I do knit other things. I just never have time to finish.

I ran out of yarn again, which is why it has a nifty design feature of two purple stripes.
I swear, of all the soakers I've made, only two of them did not want more yarn than I had. Greedy little buggers.



For my sanity's sake I have decided that I will never knit another soaker unless I have twice as much yarn as needed. Because clearly they're cursed.

Dear soaker

I hate you.

You don't deserve a skirt.

Can't sleep


...so instead I will tell you about the soaker that refuses to let me finish it.
Ok, to be fair it's more about my obsessive tendencies than anything else.
First I ran out of yarn right before the end. I had to use a different color to finish. Of course it drove me nuts. Bright idea: I'll add a skirt to hide that part!
So far so good, right?
Wrong. After having started the skirt, I decided that the wrong color section was way too annoying. I frogged back quite a bit, and made stripes instead. Woo!
Got tired of purling, so went back to working on the skirt. At this point I had circulars dangling from each end of the soaker.
After having knitted on the skirt for a couple of hours, I realized I'd run out of yarn. Again. Frogged, started again with fewer stitches for a less full skirt.

That's where I am now. Halfway done with the skirt, still not done with the decreases on the soaker itself. Purling, you know. Not in the mood.

This thing better be cute when it's done! Despite being in pastel colors, despite not being perfect... Just be cute, please!

At least I got to watch a couple of movies in the process. Terrible, cheesy movies.

Soakers and longies

are all I have the time to knit these days. I have a large pile of gorgeous sock yarn waiting to become socks, but the little miss comes first.
Not that I'm suffering - knitting with Malabrigo in lovely colors is far from torture! I'd just like to have warm feet soon. I've finished 5 soakers and one pair of longies so far, with one more soaker on the needles.
Of course now A has started getting a rash... I really really hope it's something random and not her diapers. She never had a single rash with her prefolds, so I know it's not the detergent.
I'd still use the prefolds, but they're too small to pin, and I hate using Bummi covers + trifold. Hate. The covers always get wet on the edges around the thighs. Besides, A knows how to remove them, even through her clothes.

I wish I could afford to get her only Fluffymail diapers. They're so wonderfully soft, no irritating seams, and more absorbent than anything I've tried! Doesn't hurt that they're pretty as well :p
