Here's just one of the projects I've been working on lately. I finished it up today and the weather cooperated for photos.
It's a newborn sized layette for my hairdresser.
She has found out that her baby, due in early February of 2016, will be a girl.
She had been told that she would never be able to have children, so she's very excited about becoming a mommy.
It felt right to welcome her miracle baby with a hand knit gift.
This is the "Nouveau-né"pattern by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, aka The Yarn Harlot.
It's a fairly gender-neutral pattern so I pushed the femininity with a bright pink yarn and added, lacy embellishments.
As with all new born sized layettes I'm sure it took longer to make than the baby will actually spend wearing it.
But perhaps it will be something special to bring the baby home in and then tuck away as a keepsake.
