Yarn Along: A Couple Wee Projects

I am happy to report that just as I was beginning to despair that there are no finished projects in our household in these final days leading up to the baby, a small miracle has been happening. Bit by bit, the projects have been nearing completion. There are still things that need to be taken care of, but it wouldn't be life if that weren't the case, right?
Of course all of that knitting and button sewing has meant that aside from finishing up last week's yarn, there are no new reading projects in the works.

The puerperium cardigan is cute as can be (albeit a size or two or three too big for a newborn. Has anyone had any luck slightly shrinking wool?), and the sizing issue isn't the end of the world, because it should be perfect come cooler weather.

And the Rhino Romper was a fun to knit up (seen here on top of a pile of fabric that hopefully, one of these days will be turned into a blanket and some decorations for the baby's room) and seems to be just the right size for a newborn.

Looking forward to seeing what cute little things people have been making this past week-- Ginny's cute little baby included.

Oh my, do I love that cardie! I've straight away downloaded the pattern from ravelry - planning to do a little one and one in bulkier yarn for my 2-year-old. Gorgeous!

Such sweet little knits! I especially love that sweater!
I'm no help on the question of felting...I've often wondered but have never been brave enough to try.

These are so beautiful! I think it will work out perfectly that the grey one is a little big... he won't really need the extra layer until the fall anyway. :)
