All the writing on the labels is in an Asian language; I think it's Korean. I bought the yarn off Ebay, and I am not going to ever contact the seller again(very bad experience). From the auction...

I haven't used Jiffy, but I have used wool-ease for several projects. It does pill somewhat, but it's not too bad.

Wow! And here I was all anxious about my body shape! There's actually no shaping in the skirt, except below the ribbon. It's a straight skirt; the shaping you see is just my very curvy hips....

I nursed mine, and when we were in public I always covered up. (I'm a bit of a prude.) I had a cover that was shaped more like a giant bib than a poncho. I think a poncho might be too warm, since...

My daughter is 6, and is very skinny. I measured her, around the chest, and then looked closely at the pattern. The sizes seem to be about 18-20 stitches apart, which corresponds to about 4 inches...

This tank top was super-simple. It's just k2p2 rib knitted in the round, with crochet chain straps, but it turned out pretty cute! It's made from recycled baby weight cotton. And it's perfect...
