Here is the Pink Purls baby set being modeled by the recipient, my grand-niece. Isn't she a cutie?
It was nice to see that the hat actually fits at the same time as the sweater as it was a "by guess and by golly" effort. I have no small babies around that I could do fittings on.
My mom always had two baby outfits tucked away ready for gift giving, one for a boy, the other for a girl. When one outfit was given away, she knit another to replace it. That way she was never left scrambling to make last minute baby gifts. I think it is a habit worth emulating. With that in mind I have a "boy" outfit stored away and I cast on yesterday for a "girl". It won't be long now before another little grand-neice or nephew arrives.
