Hi there, my little one is here, and I probably should have thought to ask this before she got here, but my brain went on vacation... I'm pretty sure parts of it still are...

Anyway, I have a few soakers knit up and almost ready to use... but I need to lanolize them first... I have a tube of Lansinoh HPA Lanolin which, according to the packaging, contains 100% Lansinoh HPA Lanolin - the world's purist lanolin (ultrapure medical grade, USP modified lanolin)... Will this work for lanolizing my soakers?

I read this blog entry about lanolizing, and I'm not sure if what I have is the same thing as what she's using, and the packaging is just different (her entry is from 2008, I bought what I have this year)... Or if what she's showing is another product by the same company...

Or should I be using something else completely?

I have a few cloth diapers that do require covers, and would like to use the wool soakers I've knit for this purpose... Also... in reading the blog entry, am I right in interpreting that she reuses these and washes her soakers once a month, using them multiple times in that time? This is my first time using cloth diapers and wool soakers... so I'm rather clueless when it comes to this...

TIA for any help you can offer!

I'm working on soakers from this pattern and am getting ready to lanolise them.  I picked up some Eucalan at the LYS, but I also have some Lansinoh from my early breastfeeding days.  Do I need to lanolise the the soakers with the lanolin or just wash them in the Eucalan?

I'm so proud of these shorties. They are the third pair I've made since I started knitting in February, and I think they are pretty darn close to perfect :)

I used the Picky Pants pattern, with an elastic waist. I did backside increases and short rows. I used the short row method from the Wooly Wonder forum and I think it is the best method I've tried yet. I ripped my short rows out three times in this pair, but the fourth time I was satisfied.

The yarn is organic merino from RoNevEli's at iCrave. I think the colorway was Jewel of the Nile. I super duper loved this yarn, it makes me not want to knit anything else with 100PureWool. It is much thicker, softer, and less prone to splitting.

Besides the new short row technique, I also learned to magic loop with these shorties. Oh, and I did the splitting and felting method of joining in new yarn... it actually saved me when I was grafting the crotch closed. I would have had to start over if I had not known about that technique of joining new yarn. I should also note that the Picky Pants pattern has you graft 10 stitches when closing the gusset, but when I do it I pick up an extra stitch on each side, grafting 12 instead of 10. This leaves less of a gap on each side where the gusset meets the leg.
On to the pictures...Collapse )

I am looking for knitting patterns for soakers, shorties and longies in all sizes (preemie through 18 months). Does anyone have any good patterns they are willing to share or know where I can find some?
