A Passel of Woolies for our Little Peanut

I've been working away on some woolies for the new baby. Here's what I've got so far (none of these have been washed or blocked yet--I was too eager to share):


Pattern: Ladybugz Morning Glory Longies, size small
Yarn: 100Purewool 3 ply, Warm Ice colorway
Hook: G
Mods: Made straight leg instead of flared. Worked a few extra stitches at the crotch join to form a small gusset.

Pattern: Ladybugz Morning Glory Longies, size small
Yarn: 100Purewool 3 ply, Festival colorway (this colorway looked gorgeous on the hank, but it pooled really weird in crochet--very long color repeat); I'm not sure like this pair that much, but they'll be warm and soft and water resistant. :-)

We're not finding out the sex again, since it was so much fun to be surprised the first time, so I'm sticking with yarns that I would happily put on either a boy or a girl. However . . . I have a funny feeling that this peanut may be a girl, so I think I might work up a few girly things too just in case. Lots more knitting and crocheting to do . . . And I need to buy more wool!
I also recently tried out a new pattern to make a soaker for T. I like it!

Lovely yarns - I like the sheepy sacks - never thot (well - I experienced it) the difficulty of dressing a baby under the age of about 3 mos. I'm very impressed with your crocheting! :) Congrats on your second baby. Nice to know when it's born instead of b4 you are very brave! :)
