trying to be a better eco-mama

I’ve been having so much fun with the stick blender and making “food cubes” for Lorelai – we’ve got sweet potato, apples, bananas and green beans in the freezer. How easy, just mush up the food and freeze. And as she gets older / more teeth / the hang of eating I can be lazy and mush it less! I’m loving that I don’t have to buy many jars / containers of food (not that I would recycle those). And I made strawberry jam yesterday – plan to have it tomorrow morning – hopefully it came out right!

Continuing my eco-friendliness, I also completed a swiffer cover:

The pattern (Rav link) was straightforward, easy, quick and I still managed to not pay attention and repeat rows out of order. It’s to clean / dust the floor and then be tossed in the wash.

I am currently working on a sweater for Lorelai (Get Ziggy – rav link – it comes with a hat now? man!) – I’m using Caron Simply Soft Brights – acrylic yarn, which I’m learning to love – babies are messy. and drooly. I think cotton is too heavy and I wouldn’t want the wool to felt! Why can’t I purchase Carbon Offsets for the acrylic yarn?
