Knitting Bug

I have been knitting up a storm lately, and I really like it! Mostly baby things, but that’s because they’re cute and quick to knit.

My mister is so silly, because he said it makes him nervous when I knit  baby things. LOL!

Seriously, I have no less than 6 friends who have either just had babies, or they’re newly pregnant.

I also have heaps of gorgeous colorways by Mosaic Moon in my stash, so having lovely reasons to knit garments from neglected skeins suits me just fine.

I’m so happy to have this recent knitting bug!

I Love Sewing and Knitting! ❤

These past few weeks, in addition to working way too many shifts (at my “part-time” job… grrrrr!), I have been madly crafting some organic, bamboo velour cloth diapers for a dear friend of my eldest Elfling. It’s been awesome! :0)

I made 14 diapers for her with some of my hand-dyed organic, bamboo velour; organic, cotton velour; and two different weights of fleece (200wt Wind-Pro and fuzzy). Each diaper has an inner of luxuriously-soft, organic, bamboo velour. Yum! 

This one is my absolute favourite diaper. Squish!

I’ve also been knitting like crazy! My Elflings insist I’m a robot, because they’re certain no real human could knit as fast. I assure them I’ve seen people knit much faster than I. ;0)

This is so exciting! I have a crazy-large stash of wool that I’m finally making time to work through.

Here’s a pic of some of the set I put together.

I just adore the colorway (Deep Space by Mosaic Moon) of this set. It’s bright but gender neutral, and so cozy!

Here’s a pic of the sweet, baby boy wearing the sweater. I have permission to share this photo, and I am super-excited to show how much cuter the sweater actually looks when worn by such an adorable, little person as this wee Elfling. Awwwwwe! ❤

Samhain Sewing

These last few weeks have been so exciting, as my Elflings buzz with anticipation for Samhain (Halloween) fun. They’ve had their costume ideas settled and planned out for sure since mid-September, and I’ve been busy lately either hunting for accessories, or cutting and sewing bits together. My middle Elfling, Metatron, has a top secret costume planned, so I’m bound by my promise to her that I will not post any spoilers before the great reveal. I can’t even tell you all how excited I am to share photos of the three of them. I can’t wait!

Deodorant Scents for the Holidays

Deo Trio

While making a batch of my cream deodorant this past weekend, I decided to “play” with some of my organic, scented/flavoured oils (not my organic EOs, these are designed for scenting soaps and lip balms, etc.), and whipped-up a few “holiday” scents. I came up with: Pumpkin Chai (this one smells similar to the Starbucks Pumpkin Chai Latte; I’ve been told it’s reminiscent of spiced rice pudding with warm soy milk; it’s yummy!); Maple Sugar (this one is a creamy-sweet, with a subtle maple scent); Caramel Banana (this one is a creamy, vanilla-caramel, with an authentic, subtle banana note); Gingerbread (this one smells like gingerbread cookie dough, and my Elflings are in love with it!). Honestly, it’s a lot of fun making these deodorant creams, and I love to switch it up a bit by making seasonal scents. It keeps things interesting. ♥
