My parents are in the process of moving and my mom gave me her old knitting machine (does 1 line per second! at least that's what the box says, haha, so doesn't!! This thing sucks! I'm sure it's because it's 40 years old but it's tough to get moving! Get's a little easier with each pass but still hard).
So far I've succeeded in making a scarf for a Barbie, and then I gave up, lol.



Hopefully it continues to get easier so I can make some longies!!
We need more wool.

WTF.
I stripped diapers with dawn and 12 (yes, TWELVE) hot washes.
The smell is horrid. After she pees it smells like sewage. Not as strong as before stripping, but it's there...haunting me.



I haven't washed with my new detergent yet (Country Save...will be washing tomorrow) but is that gonna change things?

Try a wash with some vinegar and rinse twice.

Bought my first cloth diapers today, pre-folds. What do I need to do to prep them before I use them?

For my ladies in Tracey's cartoon co-op.
How do I do shipping?!!?
I can't find myself of the spreadsheet for shipping.
Or is that not for cartoon diapers yet?
Would think she'd be shipping em soon, they came in a while ago and I told her to ship mine without my missing diapers.

Wash with detergent on hot then dry on hot. Repeat 6-10 times until they are quilted up.
