The making of a diaper

Recently, I was approached with a request. I was asked if I had any extra diapers hanging around by a local Doula who holds "new parents" classes. She wanted to use it in her demonstrations for the new parents, as a cloth advocacy item.

Of course, I answered right away that I would love to help out. As I have thought about this project, small as it is, I realized, why not hit 2 birds with one stone?

So, here today, In all its Video Glory, The Making of a Diaper:

Note: The Diaper in this Video is made using the Fattycakes pattern, and I am an approved Fattycakes Seamstress. The pattern is great for home use, though, and I hope you'll try it.




After some days of frustrating times with blogger, I am packing it up. The Blog will still be here in its entirety, at beebabottoms.blogspot.com, however, My custom domain, thebeebasbottoms.com, will now point to a self-hosted wordpress blog... and i pray it works better.

Please come on over, but also please excuse the messy look while I work on the move.

I pray that you will follow me over to my new home, at www.thebeebasbottoms.com.

Finally, MONKEYS!

I know, I've been promising and promising!  But here they are.  They still need the toes grafted, I'll do that tonight, and put up more pics after.... modeled even?  but now, without further ado...

The Pair

The Toe to be Grafted

The only note I'll make for this pattern is that it is most definitely NOT written for 2-at-a-time.  Cookie A. writes grewat patterns, but she is very obviously a DPN sock knitter, and the pattern did not translate easily to magic looping 2 at once.  That having been said, I love the pattern. 

Oh, and I should also note that the leg is very snug for me.  as in, I can barely get it on over my heel... but I can, just, and I love the look, so it will survive.  With wear, I hope it will go on a little easier, but really, I'd rather a snug sock than a loose one.

Blogger Troubles

I had some troubles with the blog today, but the Monkeys are done minus grafting the toes. I'll post more indepth tommorrow.


They're Mine! All Mine!

Really. For once, I Dyed up fibers just for me. I'll share them, and better yet, I'll probably even sell them after they are spun. (cause I love the spinning much more than the knitting, really) But for now, they are mine!

Excuse the not great pics, I promise I'll get better ones before I spin them up. These are the ones I dyed for the Yarn everyday.
Daydreams on Merino/Tencel:

And an unnamed Colorway on sock fiber... that is, a blend of superwash wool, very very soft, and nylon.

Sock Yarn
Just wanted to share.
