A picture! My first new-baby knit! I'm not in love with the embroidered stars, so I may still fiddle with the placement, but overall I think it turned out pretty darn cute.
And my current knit is a birth-related knit, a hot water bottle cozy, for the lower back pain now and whatever other pains arise in the coming months and at the birth.
I usually use Cascade 220 for soakers and longies, but I agree that it's probably not the best quality. It sure is cheap, though, and comes in a million colors. I will use it for most of the soakers and longies I make for this little one, but thanks for the reminder about the Peace Fleece. DS has a sweater and some longies made from PF and I love how soft and thick they are! I was thinking of buying the worsted Wool of the Andes from KnitPicks because I like some of their colors and it's pretty reasonably priced. Has anyone used it? I still haven't started much for this little one. I am trying to get a bunch of other projects out of the way first so I can really focus on knitting for the baby. Considering my list of baby knitting keeps growing, I really need to get started!
