Co-Op Addiction!

I think I have an addiction!

I have been introduced to a few co-ops either for fabric of for yarn. I just put in an order for Mosaic Moon Yarn and now they're offering a Purewool co-op. I think I'm forming a dangerous addiction for hand dyed yarn. :)

So in the near future (after the Holidays) my YYMH option might expand to offering size customs on specific colorways for Longies/Other Crochet items.

Here are the colorways I'll be working with, either for myself or a pre-order for longies, from Mosaic Moon (pics from Mosaic Moon's website):

Getting caught up....

So I've had a lot happen since I originally opened my tester slots for soft sole baby shoes. I obtained a license to sell Shopping Cart Covers, Nursing Covers, Wool Longies for Cloth Diapering and I have been on a buying frenzy of various materials to get started.

I am in process of making 3 shopping cart covers. The ladies provided the material and funds to purchase the notions. This worked out great! Each will have a completely custom shopping cart cover unique for their little one and they chose spectacular fabrics!

I have closed my tester slots for the soft sole baby shoes and received the leather! I'm just collecting some last minute details from my testers before I start cutting.

And as of yesterday I submitted my first order for yarn for longies. I have pre-orders for YYMH and can't wait to get the ball rolling on those.

So I'm busy and will be busy until after the Holiday season but I am looking forward to every minute.

I want to thank all of my mamas who are participating in my testing phases or who have made pre-orders. This is a huge step in the right direction for Unreal Baby.

Thank you all!

Now Available! YYMH!

Now Available: Your Yarn My Hook Custom Longies!

You send me your yarn, and I'll crochet you a pair of longies! I use the ladybugz pattern which has a rear extension to make room for that cloth diapered bum!

Please allow 2-3 weeks from the time I receive your yarn. You pay the fee, ship the yarn to me, I'll make the longies and you pay shipping back to you - easy!

I can wash and lanolize upon request at no additional charge, but keep in mind it will add about 3 days onto the shipping date to allow for ample time to dry!
