I logged onto my new website tonight and almost fell out of my chair when I read the number of hits I'd had! Thanks fo Pamela for kind words!
No comment on who gets the "got cloth" soaker because it hasn't been delivered yet and I think the mommy in question should have something to brag about! I hope so at least if the darn thing fits.
re: soaker over aios - yes, that is partially so that dd will not "christen" said soaker, but also because I am relatively new to CD and only have AIOS at present!
Not long ago a friend asked to teach her to knit so she could knit a soaker for her dd. "Soaker?" I asked, "what's that?" Before I knew it I was writing a pattern, koolaid-dying yarn and had spent WAY too much on a cloth diaper stash for my then 17 mo dd! I've done the math and think I might break even unless she is slow to potty train.
I don't know how I remained so clueless. I attend Le Leche league meetings, wore my baby til she could walk and refused to be carried, etc..etc...but had never seen a modern cloth dipe and just had no idea how easy it could be.
I use HH, Bumkins and a few other fitted styles. So, right now my dd doesn't really "need" soakers although I do plan to make her some longies for winter and leak control as well. Then again, she didn't really need a silly fish hat either !
This is my only creative outlet these days (other than tantrum control) so I like to be free to do my own designs.
In fact, the "got cloth" mom requested a plain soaker but I just couldn't comply. Sorry! I think she's o.k. with it
I've been informed that I should not discuss business on this forum so I won't talk shop anymore! I've edited my post and hope I took out all of the offensive material.
I guess I'm a rookie in many respects. I did not intend to advertise here at all. I guess I got a little excitied what with all the fuss combined with sleep deprivation.
Hey, it's not really advertising if you don't have anything to sell, right ?
