Knitter's Delight

I've been a knitter for years now, and have never tired of it! Well, except for that brief 9 months of pregnancy when hormones took over and things I had loved I didn't care for so much. But as soon as I gave birth and could pick up a pair of of needles again, I was right back on the knitty wagon.

Knitting has always felt so second nature to me from the moment I taught myself how. I attribute that feeling to having ancestors who knit. It's ingrained in my DNA!

Browsing through my Etsy favorites tonight, I've compiled a little collection of items that I, as a knitter, and lover of all things knitted, seriously covet...

This yarn bowl, by MaidofClay, seems like the most adorable solution to knitting with an unwieldy ball of yarn.

A scotch on the rocks would go soooo well with a night in and some not-too-complicated knitting. I'm game.

Everything about this knitted pouf ottoman amazes and draws me to it. If I had the cash, this sweet baby would so be mine!

If you knit, what would be your number one outlandish knitting accessory to own (or perhaps that you already own)?

Some Cloth Diapering Resources

I have a few favorite online sources where I go to learn about the different types of cloth diapers, read and watch reviews, get tips on washing/caring for diapers, and of course, places to buy said diapers too. Here's a short list of my most frequented cloth diapering resources...

DiaperPin - A review site where CDing parents can rate the diapers they have used on their kid(s).

Dirty Diaper Laundry Blog - A wealth of video reviews on all kinds of cloth diapers (these videos and reviews really are essential to getting to know the diaper(s) you might potentially buy), plus cloth diaper giveaways, CD discussions, and so much more.

The Cloth Diaper Whisperer - Another great blog with lots of information on different types of cloth diapers, diaper care, and giveaways galore!

Zany Zebra - I found this page to be very helpful and thorough in explaining how to care for different types of cloth diapers in different ways.

Kelly's Closet - This is where I've done the majority of my cloth diapering and CD accessory shopping. I love it because they always have promotions going on (i.e. free one size diapers with a purchase of X amount, free shipping, etc). I also love that you can rack up points with all of your purchases and when you accrue enough points, use them for store credit. I've made many purchases from this website and have never been disappointed with the service or speed.

BTLdiapering Yahoo Group - This forum is awesome if you're looking for answers to your cloth diapering questions. I've always received great answers and support every time I posted a query.

Have any questions about cloth diapering? I'd love to share what I've learned with you, so feel free to ask in the comments section!

It's the simple little things in life that make me happy, and thankful. Like my sweet bub. He's been around for only a year and a half now but it seems so much longer and I can't imagine things without him!
