I'm a non-crafty mama, so I apologize in advance for my totally ignorant question.
When ds was born 5 years ago, dh's aunt knitted him some pants. We never got them to fit quite right - the waist was too large for the length, so he wore them all of once and we never needed to wash them.
Welll, here we are 5 years later, and I was thinking I could put a little ribbon "drawstring" around the waist to make it a little more adjustable for our dd, who's arriving in a few weeks. I was even thinking that they may work as a diaper cover, if they are wool...but I don't know what material they are knitted from!
I don't want to ask dh's aunt, because then she'll know we rarely used them with ds. Is there a way for me to find out if it's wool/cotton/synthetic, or would it just be a matter of trial and error?
