frootijen I need to know what you think of the leg cuff as I did it.  I didn't know how else to describe it.  It's just plain garter stitch  If you don't like it, I can do a ribbing across the bottom instead or even a rolled edge.  Let me know and I'll try and get the other leg finished up today.


cerise_blue I'm still working on your shorties as well obviously.  I have about 10 inches of your rise done.  I can take a picture if you like, but there isn't much to see at this point.  I have done a little bit of shaping in the bottom.

color_so_loud I haven't forgotten about you or your bunny.  I have some really pretty pink (cotton) mottled yarn that I am going to put together with white (also cotton, but very soft microfiber).  It's gonna be pretty soft and would be fine for a baby to suck on.  As soon as I finish the shorties for frootijen, I'll start on the bunny.  I should be able to start and finish it by the end of next week.  I hope you don't mind holding onto that diaper for me.  =)

Not as much knitting time as usual [May. 7th, 2007|03:54 pm]

[Current Mood |exhaustedexhausted]

I've been very busy over the past couple days and not getting as much knitting/crocheting time as usual. We are thinking about putting our house on the market and moving VERY soon. Add this to having a 2 year old and being 34 weeks pregnant and you end up with a tired me.

Here's where we stand as of right now.

frootijen, your shorties are just finished up the rise...whew that was a long rise.... and I'm getting ready to do the gussets and split for the legs. I was thinking maybe make the legs no more than about 2.5" so they won't hang down below his knees. Let me know if you want them longer than or if his knees are farther down than that.

cerise_blue, your shorties have about 4" done on the rise. I'm getting there, but haven't had as much time to work on them. I can't crochet in the dark I'm finding (but I can knit in the dark while I'm waiting for my son to go to sleep...go figure) So they are coming along slowly but surely. Let me know when you get the skirt and I would love to see some pictures in action if you would like to share them. =)

Used diapers for sale or trade [May. 4th, 2007|07:03 pm]

This is my community so I figured I can post my own for sale stuff here if I want....hehe. Maybe someone will actually want it here.

Mostly Large stuffCollapse )

I also have a white v1.0 Bumgenius. It's a little dingy, which again I'm not sure why. I'm the second owner of this diaper. I can take a picture if needed. I just keep it in my car because my toddler can get it off partially because it's too small, so it's a backup. It has one very small stain inside from Boudreaux Butt Paste. *sigh* I have worked very hard on this stain with some dawn and a toothbrush, so it is very minimal. $8ppd add $1 if you want me to include a cottonbabies insert with.

I have a Winnie the Pooh diaper bag that is free for shipping or if you buy something else I'll throw it in if you want.

I also have a Large Motherhood maternity long sleeve maroon shirt that is too big for me. It's brand new and I'd like $8 or make me an offer. I can take a picture if needed.

If you would rather do a trade I'm looking for small fitteds or AI2s.

Most of you should know, but I am expecting a little girl in mid June. This by no means will affect my customs lists, etc except for MAYBE a week. Right now I have a lot of time on my hands until then.

I'm also trying to stock up on small/newborn diapers (probably more smalls than newborn because my kiddos don't come out small...or at least my first one wasn't). I'm mostly looking for fitteds and AI2s.

Anyway...I don't have a lot of cash for the diapers, so any of you ladies that know people who are trying to sell off small stuff and use wool, PLEASE feel free to refer them over here for some type of trade. I am always open to trades.

In progress:

Large Peace Fleece Tundra shorties for frootijen
Toddler Black w/ gray edging merino shorties for cerise_blue

Next:
Bunny blankie for color_so_loud

Also just some personal stuff I have going on...
Purple cotton tank top (I'm hoping to finish this by the time I'm done being pregnant..it should fit me then)
Illusion counterpoint scarf (this is not high on my priority list of finishing)

Next personal:
I want to do another dishcloth for myself, but I haven't decided what kind of stitch pattern I want to do.  I know how big I want it and which yarn I want to use, but I haven't decided what kind of stitch I want...just something that won't get lost in the variegated yarn.

Finished crocheted skirtie/soaker [May. 2nd, 2007|09:48 am]

Here is the finished (well minus the drawstring) skirtie for cerise_blue . I am pretty amazed at how long this took me, but it took almost 2 whole skeins of yarn when normally something that size would have just taken one, so I guess it makes sense that it took twice as long as normal.


frootijen is up next.  I still have a toddler pair of shorties to make for cerise_blue, but I need to get to frootijen because she was first, we were just waiting on her yarn.  I think I can actually work on them both at the same time.... because one is knit and the other one is crochet (and I can't ever focus on one project at once anyway...HAHAHA.)

So I'm ready for you frootijen.  =)  Do you like a ribbed waistband or do you know?  What other kinds of wool do you have, so I can kind of figure out what you prefer?

I couldn't resist adding ruffles....Let me know if you don't like them and I can take them out easily and just do a simple cuff.

Here is what it looks like so far, before I decrease a little bit for the waist to be a tad smaller. Then I'll add the skirt.

I need to know though...cerise_blue, do you want me to add an inch to the rise (1/2" in the back 1/2" in the front) to make sure it will fit for a while?

Soaker/skirt in progress [Apr. 21st, 2007|11:17 pm]

I've finished the actual soaker part, so it's totally gray, but totally cute. Once I get the pink edging done I'll take a picture of what the soaker looks like with some pink on it before I start adding on the skirt. Should be ready to start the skirt on it tomorrow, so I'm hoping to get a picture posted tomorrow.

frootijen, The Peace Fleece is here, so technically you were first and I can stop this one start on yours once you get me measurements and such. If you aren't ready yet, that's fine, just let me know. The Peace Fleece is actually at a friend's house and I probably won't be able to go pick it up until Monday or Tuesday.

I'm getting ready to make this for my next custom as well as a pair of toddler shorties and a skirtie (a skirt over a soaker). And of course also making a pair of shorties for frootijen as soon as her Peace Fleece comes in.

While I'm here and playing with pictures....here is some of the latest.

Some of it, I haven't decided price or I want to keep it yet, but if you want something let me know as always.

There are a few bags, some dishcloths and an ITTY bitty baby sweater. I'm thinking PREEMIE.

Image heavy, but they are all scaled down a bitCollapse )
