I showed it to some friends who use cloth diapers, and they said it is the perfect size for a newborn. I was pretty excited. They recommended I make the next ones in the next size up, since newborn size does not fit for very long. Now I just need my baby girl so I can try it on her.
I recently finished the wool diaper cover I was making, and it was a success. My plan was to make a size small and felt it down to newborn size. (Felting helps covers hold in more moisture.) After I finished the knitting and weaving-in ends, I felted it. I had never felted before, so I wasn't sure how I would do, especially since I have a front-loading wash machine. I ran it through two hot wash cycles, ending it before the spin cycle started, and then I put it in the dryer for an hour and a half and air-dried it the rest of the way.
