FO's - Orange baby set

I knit this nursing shawl and baby hat for my friend who is due in January. :smiley: 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! :smiley:

That’s gorgeous, Liz! I love the color. That’s one lucky momma…
:inlove:

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. :thumbsup:

Very pretty! And Blue Sky Cotton–that must be so soft. :inlove:

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 :heart: VE it. You did such a great job!!

I so, so love them! :heart: the color!! Don’t u just love LMKG?! I knit that same hat for my granddaughter last Christmas :wink:

Yes, Rebecca, I love that book! There is so much that I get out of that book all the time. It’s awesome.

WOW! beautiful!! :thumbsup:

Oooh, lucky baby and mummy! That color is so warm…

Gorgeous!

Thank you Liz… that baby afghan would still be in the beginning stages if you hadn’t posted that link LOL I just couldn’t find the right pattern at all… frogged that thing I don’t know how many times before you posted the pattern… :cheering:
