Thanks to Rachel’s suggestion, I have used up the Berroco DK in Pimpernel, which is a cool red-pink color I used as an accent in the Sheep Yoke Cardigan.
What did I knit up? Bumm Soakers, of course!
Also known as woolies, these little panties (that one’s for you Sam) cover cloth diapers. Once a staple in the baby wardrobe in the ’30s and ’40s, they’re making a comeback with the resurgence of cloth diapers. I’m seriously considering cloth diapers- not for me, but for possible future little pebbles. Especially when you look at the cost of disposable diapers over a year, $2600, it seems like a no-brainer. I say that now, I’ll let you know how I feel after a month of washing poopy diapers.
Here’s what the cute little set looks like:
So sweet! I think I’ll try making the next set of soakers a bit smaller, these turned out bigger than I expected- knit up on US 6 needles. I’ll cast on fewer stitches (maybe 54 instead of 60), too.
I hope you have a great Friday! Thanks for stopping by-
