Here are the latest additions:
Propeller hat - Ravelry link (another from the Wee Wooly Toppers booklet), and tiny, newborn-sized thumb-less mittens (I'll be posting the pattern soon for posterity here). I'm in the middle of the first of the light blue mitten set. They're a great, lightening-fast knit that's perfect for taking along wherever the children are creating adventures.
While I'm sure that the recipient will be much more fetching in this hat, I had no one small enough, so here we have a yarn cake (Time Of The Month Spunky Eclectic sock yarn, no less), modeling it for us.
It appears a bit breast-like to me...(or is that just the sex-deprivation talking?)
I completed the boy's yarn, and they are eagerly awaiting the knitting of their winter warmers.

Here are their skeins, in portrait:
Sakina Needles Smokestack BFL (from The Loopy Ewe), 2ply, 4 oz, 230 yds
Hanks In The Hood Merino Batt Puppy Love (from Paradise Fibers), 2-ply, 3 oz, 260 yds.
Both yarns were roughly wet-finished to full them slightly, and have ended up bouncy and round, and hopefully able to withstand the rigors of Little Boy World. I can't wait to get both of these skeins on my needles!
