Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Finished the Soaker and Etsy {Yarn Along}

Finished the Soaker and Etsy {Yarn Along}

I finished the soaker I was knitting last week, and it FITS my pumpkin!!  She has not worn it for an extended period of time because I just finished it on Monday and it's now lanolizing (for a tutorial see How to lanolize a wool diaper).  I have not put cloth diapers on Charis this week because she has diaper rash and I have been putting Desitin on her.  I plan on making Fleece liners, so I can go back to the cloth diapers, but have yet to do that.
The finished soaker on Charis.
It can fit under her onesies!!
(Sorry for the poor picture quality.)
Charis' favorite toy.
This week I am knitting a few baby items and have not taken pictures yet.  I'm thinking about opening a store on Etsy (see my Etsy post).  If you do have an Etsy store, I'd love suggestions, recommendations, things you regret doing or not doing, etc.

I have a confession.  I have not read anymore from The Advantage of Doulas since the Yarn Along last week.  We had guests staying at our apartment this past holiday weekend, and rather than reading, I decided to visit with them.

If you like knitting and reading, 
don't forget to join us at Ginny's Yarn Along.

  2. Love that little soaker! I have such a weakness for baby bums in soakers! I miss mine so (they are 9 and 10 now).
