A Bit Personal

I have recently discovered the awesomeness that is a menstrual cup. Hey, I warned you this was personal. If you are a woman who is so lucky to deal with this on a regular basis, I highly recommend you look into one.
How is this related to knitting? Well, I was so inspired and I needed a way to bring it up in conversation...It's my new religion. Have you heard the good news?
Pattern soon, for the 2 other people who knit and use cups...

I think that's funny and cute. :) I have a Divacup and I absolutely adore it. It's much more comfortable than the other methods and I got so sick of buying tampons that are so chemically screwed with. It really is quite comfortable. I totally recommend them to people when they bring it up.

I think the hat is amazing and cute, but I don't think I'd have the guts to wear it! :) BUT good on you!

Love it! I'm already converted on cups, but it might just convert me on knitting ;) --Diana

Make that 3 people who knit and use the cup!! Or from the looks of the comments, there's quite a few of us! :D

Make that four. But I don't think I would wear one on my head.... You are too funny!
BTW - I found your blog after reading your socktopus pattern on Knitty. He is very cute. You should blog again. I would read. :)

Genius! I love it! I love my mooncup (uk), and I recently took up knitting again with a view to recreating an old sweater that I loved...coincidence!
Do ordinary people recognise what your hat really resembles?

Do you sell these hats? I'm the type who goes out of their ways to spread the word as well! lol
