More baby projects in the works. I'm making a baby sweater for a friend who is due in about a month. She's having a little boy, and I found some great BRIGHT purple Patons Look at Me yarn on clearance. I'm making This Pattern and here is my progress so far:

It's a touch more purple than it appears in the photo, but about that bright.

I also did some dying. I have a felting project in mind, so I attacked some of the Patons Classic wool I have with the koolaid:
Both photos show the before and after yarns. I'm really happy with how the veregated stuff turned out. They grey was kind of dark to start with, so I don't know if I will use that one. I was leery of buying white, I've heard the bleaching process affects feltability, so I stuck with darker colours.
