More knitted things

Friends of mine Colin and Paula have just had a gorgeous baby girl. Congratulations! Who I was able to meet for the first time this morning. And oh what a little cutie she is. And a very chilled out little girl she seemed too.

And I thought you might like to see what I knitted for her. Seeing as the sex of the baby was undetermined prior to birth and with Christmas coming up, I thought red would be a great all round colour. I know i am biased towards this colour too. I did think that aqua, my other choice, was a bit more of a summer colour though. And once I knew a little girl had arrived I was able to do a little bit of embroidery to customize her garments. Darling, you’re never too young for fashion lessons!

So here is her little ensemble. Which I am hoping in the future I will be able to show you a photo of her in.

This is the first time I have knit in pure acrylic (v practical for a newborn, no worries about wool allergies and its nice and warm) and I have to say its lovely stuff to use, and practical for kids. But I am a natural’s kinda girl at heart. Give me pure cottons, silks, alpaca, etc any day. But hey, a lesson has been learnt. Gifting knitting items can be affordable and rewarding when you buy acrylic yarns. And Colin and Paula did seem very pleased with them. Which is the idea.
