Mini Stocking & More Colors

We just came home from 3 days in Chicago. Our second evening we were treated to a private sunset cruise on lake Michigan.  It was beautiful, clear skies, warm breeze and the water was an amazing emerald and teal in the setting sun.  When we came home I had to try and capture those colors in wool.  Although my colorway doesn’t do the awesome sight justice, here is

  1. Glad to know I am not the only one seduced by yarn.
    What is a Soaker Sleep Sack?

  2. Henya, Ah! I don't have my wool page up yet! Wool covers are used in place of a plastic cloth diaper cover. Wool will absorb about 30% of its weight in liquid. When lanolized it is basicly waterproof and when become damp you just air dry. Unless you have a diaper blowout or they become soiled you don't need to wash them until they have an odor. Generally you see shorts or pants. The sleep sack is great for newborns and the first few months for quick diaper changes. Wool is breathable so its cool in summer and warm in winter. Great alternative to disposable diapers....and cuter!
