Julie, those are beautiful!
I have the yarn and the Little Turtle Knits soaker/longies pattern all ready to go, to make two pairs of longies, but I have to wait till I get all my other projects done first (am working on gifts for Christmas and a friend's baby right now). I am really excited to get started.
I'm not remotely a hyena and can't imagine paying what some are willing to pay for wool covers (especially since I have to get double everything!
). That's why I'm psyched to try making some cute stuff myself.
Julie, where do you get the Malabrigo yarn? I bought Manos colorways for my longies but am concerned that it will be too itchy. Am currently knitting a hat with it, and though it's a beaut, it feels a bit rough to me for baby skin (esp. compared to the longies I already own, which I think are probably knit w/ merino).
