I knit this nursing shawl and baby hat for my friend who is due in January. The blanket is a pattern that I listed on the pattern forum and the baby hat is out of the “Last Minute Knitted Gifts” books (Kim’s hats). It’s just a basic roll-brim hat.
Very, very nice!! Looks so soft and cushy. Great job, she’ll love it!
That is simply beautiful! Your friend will be so blessed!
That’s gorgeous, Liz! I love the color. That’s one lucky momma…
I love that blanket!
That is beautiful! The cotton looks so much nicer than Sugar ‘n’ Cream…it has more of a sheen to it. Is it easier to work with? Nice that you chose such a different color than traditional, too!
[color=indigo]Liz, this set is gorgeous. I agree with Jan, it’s nice to see baby stuff that isn’t pastel.[/color]
The set is really pretty!! Not sure if you seen it or not but in the FO post in General knitting I posted a picture of the afghan I did using your pattern… I really liked it and I didn’t get bored cause I wasn’t doing the same thing I was either k8 or p8.
Very pretty! And Blue Sky Cotton–that must be so soft.
Jan, it is SOOO much easier to work with than Sugar n Cream… it is MUCH softer too! Mind you, it’s a bit more expensive as well. But, as I alwayyys say, “You get what you pay for!” It’s worth it to me for a nice gift. I want to make a blanket out of that stuff for ME! :lol:
I’m going to look right now!
I also love that this set isn’t in the traditional pastel baby colors. It’s for a very untraditional type of couple. She’s going to LOOOOVE that it’s not pastel blue/pink/yellow/green. I can’t wait to give it to her. Dec. 10th is her baby shower (which I’m hosting)!
Dustina - I just checked out your baby blanket and I L VE it. You did such a great job!!
I so, so love them! the color!! Don’t u just love LMKG?! I knit that same hat for my granddaughter last Christmas
Yes, Rebecca, I love that book! There is so much that I get out of that book all the time. It’s awesome.
Oooh, lucky baby and mummy! That color is so warm…
Really lovely…your friend is very lucky!
