(You make me feel like a) natural woman

I must apologise again to any knitty types for the terrible lack of knitting content in my knitting blog!!  I am still working (slowly) on the Central Park Hoodie, and I really should get on with that because I really want to make one of these monsters that everyone seems to be making at the moment.  But which one to chose?  I have loads of sock yarn leftovers I could use, and was thinking of using a different one for each bit.  My next door neighbours are expecting a baby at Christmas so it would be a rather unique gift I think.

The title of this post refers to how things have changed for me recently with regard to the “products” I use.  This evening I went for a bath in which I washed using my own handmade soap.  I cleaned my face with natural oils and moisturised with my own handmade moisturiser. I put my handmade lip balm on my lips and tomorrow morning I will get up and wash my hair with my handmade shampoo bar!  Apart from my skin feeling better, I also feel better in myself knowing that I am not putting who knows what on my skin.  I know exactly what is in the things I am using and no chemicals!!

I now have my Safety Certificate for my handmade soaps so I can now sell them!  My website is coming along and I now have my logo and am working on my packaging.  This is a first attempt, but I quite like it, its not too fussy……

  1. Congratulations on your certificate!

    I’v knit a lot of those monsters and if you’re planning to use sock yarn I think I’d recommend knitting Quincy. The other monsters are kind of designed for worsted yarn. I used dk and they’re not huge but I think sock yarn would make them pretty tiny. Still, tiny monsters are very cute!
