what we're loving...

this is a cloth-diapering momma's dream:

a pair of gorgeous, hand-knitted wool "shorties."



a matching cap. an adorable model. this adorable set was handmade by my brother's extremely talented girlfriend jaime as a christmas gift for lucy. the shorties ended up needing a slight tweak to accommodate lucy's chunky thighs (which are almost a foot in diameter--no exaggeration!) and they're now a perfect fit. wool is amazing--once properly lanolized, it contains wetness as well as PUL but is naturally antibacterial and breathable. more on lanolizing in another post--it's my bedtime!
lucy is sporting a kicky pants bamboo shirt. the softest thing i've ever felt in the way of everyday baby clothes, aside from the shorties, of course. bamboo is naturally organic and antibacterial, and apparently stays 2-3 degrees warmer in the cold and 2-3 degrees cooler in the heat. lucy likes how it accentuates her tummy, and i can't help but agree. this ensemble is a very good look!

I love the set. My son got 3 pairs of wool shorties yesterday that I need to lanolize so I am looking forward to that post. Too cute!!

gorgeous! you are so lucky to have such talent in the family. she should open an etsy store so the rest of us can share the love :)

I agree with Renee, share the love! Tell her that she would have a great customer base with the EFF girls :)

I'm so flattered. Unfortunately, I'm not so good with deadlinesor productivity, so an etsy shop might not work out. But if I ever do, you'll be the first to know...
