That will work Amber. It isn't as thick or soft or stretchy as say WCW or ADG, but it should work. I think most HC interlock sellers use a 95/5 blend, but Jeanne is out until Nov according to her site. She does have a "washable" 95/5 blend, but I am not sure how it would work as a diaper cover. I ended up finding some 97/3 on FSOT. I'd rather have the 95/5, but I think the 97/3 should also work fine.

Re: Knitters/Hookers/Spinners/Dyers WIP 9/13/2010

The interlock is kinda fun to sew. The dyeing is a little different than yarn. I just cut out a pair of NB interlock pants last night. I am going to try to get them in some dye today or tomorrow when I get a sec and sew them up. You gotta really look for the thick weight. The thin is not worth a darn. I got mine in trades.

Maria, thanks. The rest is girlie so we should have any issues...lol

Re: Knitters/Hookers/Spinners/Dyers WIP 9/13/2010

Good morning!

Shelly, those longies look great! I can't wait to see the repurposed kimono, too.

I finished those little bitty footies I was working on (just need to whip up a hat to go with them, I think) and worked on DS1's Lark vest yesterday. I got the body all done, so now I'm about an inch and a half into the hood. Then there's a ton of ribbing to do after that, sigh. DS was all excited that I was seaming the shoulders yesterday, "So, you're almost done, then?" Um, no, not really.

I'm working on some orange and brown striped longies for Capella (BBR solids, ) and am trying to whip these out fast so I can get to my next YYMN--MM Barn Owl on Gaia Bulky, yum!

The colorway is purewool and Aimee dyed the trim to match for me! She did an excellent job, it matches prefectly! I'm going to get some brown ribbon for the cuffs.

I saw that! I was seriously thinking I'd be happy to get $45 for Team Carter. I'm still that I've helped raise so much!
