    Lovely sweaters. But what about laundering? Seems like wool sweaters would be a lot of special laundering or drycleaning for new moms?

      Some are superwash, which can go in the washer and are best laid flat to dry. I hand wash my kids wool sweaters but IMHO they don’t need to be washed unless they are visibly dirty.

    I made a sweet little cardy for my second-born to wear home from the hospital, and it actually only fit him for about 3 weeks, but even now that he is a toddler that cardy has ended up being the only hand knit he has worn that isn’t a hand-me-down! I think it’s such a special thing to do for any baby but especially the non-firstborns who get hardly anything of their own.

    I knit sweaters for the first coming home for everyone I know who is pregnant. They use them and keep them forever. On the plus side they work up fast and are very satisfying. Working on an entire layette for my middle son who is having their 1st child.

    Now I’m all gag gah about little humans, just love them. Some like the babies when they’re a bit more interactive but for me the newborn is where it’s at. Compact, portable and needy! I used to be a midwife! Beeeeeutiful knitting’s there, very lucky weeun.
    Stay safe, always enjoy reading your blog. Lesley, Sydney.
