Knitting like a fool

I cloth diaper Presley. While I was on maternity leave, I took a knitting class from this yarn store 2 minutes from the house. I took Presley and she'd sleep in her carrier, while the lady's dog/cat sniffed at her like "what the heck is this?!" it was cute. Anyways, i learned to knit. My whole purpose was to learn how to do soakers, to start with. The lady had no idea what the heck a soaker is, but once i explained it, she pretty much caught on.

(for those of you who don't know, it's made of wool, and you lanolize it afterwards to make it absorb pee. it's a natural cleaner, so you really only have to wash them every 2-3 weeks, even longer, unless they get poo on them.)

this is my first soaker. the seam came out totally wrong, but you learn : )

I also started a pair of Sheepy Pants Longies, and oh my goodness...I wish i had finished them before I went back to work. I finally finished one leg this weekend, and need to finish the other. like I said before, your first project you learn quite a bit. i learned i wanted flared legs, but added too many stitches, b/c these are like, 70's flares!! but, still cute : )
