 More woollies for my boy

Here is my latest knit for Austy - a pair of knitted pants to wear to bed over his bulky cloth night nappy and keep him dry. The yarn is a minimally processed Western Australian wool that I hand dyed myself. At first I was worried that it wouldn't be soft enough but after a few washes (to stop the dye running) the wool has become a nice soft, sturdy knit that looks like it will wear well. The cuffs are a shepherd "Colour Me" 8ply, that is machine washable, and suprisingly soft with a little fuzz. I will certainly be buying more of it for Austy projects in the future.
