knitted newborn layette

I think I've completed as much of this layette as I'm likely going to before baby girl's arrival! The only thing left that I'd really like to finish are some newborn socks. Oh, and maybe a sweet little dress! And, I somehow managed to forget a baby blanket. Where does the time go?! But knitted blankets are abundant here, so that can be a nice winter project I suppose.



I knit these two sweaters early on in pregnancy, using scrap yarn, before we knew baby was a girl. (And also when I was trying to learn knitting sleeves in the round! That didn't go very well at first, but I think I've got it now). The short sleeve is a puerperium and the long sleeve is this newborn cardigan.



I loved knitting these rompers, and found the pattern easy to follow. I did go up a couple needle sizes to cast off the sleeves, as someone in the comments suggested. The sweet buttons are from Wooly Moss Roots.


Three hats in the softest alpaca and angora wool (The undyed yarn is made by one of my neighbors!) Two sizes of the Little Shell Lace Bonnet (which does seem to knit up very small), and one with a beautiful leaf stitch, which I seamed up the side to make a cap instead of a bonnet. 


The smallest of cardigans, and some longies to grow into. 



This is my first Fall baby. I'm pretty excited to bundle her up in hand knitted woolens!
