It's finished! I love it! However it turned out too big, but he will grow into it. Better that than too small... I used leftover yarns for this one, and they all are different shades of Drops Baby Merino. I underestimated the need for the dark gray yarn and needed to buy more, so now I have about as much of it left as I had when I started, but it doesn't matter, I'm sure I will find use for it. I was afraid I'd have to buy more of the lavender as well, but I had just enough and there were even a few meters to spare:
If you have missed the post where I wrote about this project earlier, let me bring you up to date. The inspiration for it came from a mystery-sock-KAL by a Finnish blogger, called Muita Ihania (you can find the original pattern here). I had just finished my Arne&Carlos socks so I didn't feel the need for another pair but I loved the pattern and wanted to do something with it. So I decided to use it for a knitted onesie.
I used the Litte William's Body pattern from Drops Design as the guideline and base for my body, but substituted the charted sections with the ones from the Muita Ihania blog. I didn't do any decreases for the sleeves but knitted them straight. I think those are the only modifications I made (even though mine looks now completely different than the original!)
Charts: Muita Ihania Talvisukat
Yarns: Drops Baby Merino MC #20 dark gray
CCs #13 navy blue, #10 light turquoise, #25 lavender,

By the way: I should start to weave in the end as I knit so I don't end up with a monstrosity like this:
I counted: there were 76 tails to weave in! That took like forever!!!
