A Very Good Reason

I have used cloth diapers for four of my five kids. I am often asked why? Why go to all that trouble when disposable diapers are so much easier? Well, I am chock full of information about cloth vs. disposable concerning environment, economics and health. I have logged  hours of research and have made a very informed  choice. However, I have a short answer to this question. Two words, actually. And, as a knitter, this is enough. Are you ready?

Wool Soaker

Adorable, durable, useful quick knits in whatever creative look I can come up with. I call this one PB & J because knitting these colors together made me crave the childhood staple with a tall glass of cold milk. I made up this pattern in order to use up the ends of left over yarn from all the longies that I made for Chloe this winter. I love the way the skirt ruffles out and the stripes all seem to be planned, even though they weren’t. After hours of sweater knitting, this little sweetie was a breath of fresh air to knit.

Now, don’t you wish you used cloth diapers, too?

And in case you were wondering, photographing a nine-month-old is a lot like eating soup with a slotted spoon.
