Happy New Year Everyone
I’m knitting a baby car seat blanket for my daughter in law. She’s expecting in June and I’m praying all goes well for her this time :heart: I expect there’ll be many more baby items made as well, but I will try to finish off the socks, cardigan, shawl(s) (and there’s something else that slips my mind at the minute!!) wips I started last year, sigh!
What a start to the New Year - never any different!! :grinning:

Hsppy New Years to everyone. I am working on sewing a baby sweater together and i am making a baby pram set, a romper outfit, a blanket and a red and white crochet dress all for my girlfriends daughter who is due in February. I have already completed 2 dresses for her. For Christmas I made a close friends mother a shawl. I think this is enough to keep me busy for awhile. I will post pictures as i finish the items

Happy New Year!!

I made a little doll and managed to finish it before Christmas! :slight_smile: The color on the photo of her holding it are correct.

Thank you! :heartbeat::heart:

Forgot to post the pattern - It should be noted here I didn’t follow the pattern as written. I used a few numbers, but chose to knit in the round and used a turkish cast on bottom up method for the dress. :slight_smile:

Happy New Year, everyone!

I have made a scarf for my younger cousin’s youngest daughter as a late holiday gift. (I say late holiday because my other cousin and her husband and stepson spent the holidays with her husband’s family a few weeks ago, and we have not had our usual holiday party where we give holiday gifts yet. They just got back a few days ago.) This is what it looks like:

That is beautiful i love baby outfits. I am currently working on a number of outfits. Love the mint green. Could you give me the names of the patterns?

Thank you salmonmac, you really are very kind. I haven’t found buttons for it yet. Perhaps, if they find out what sex they’re expecting, I’ll know better what to look for!

Thank you trisha54. The matinée coat is an old Emu pattern no: 8496 and I made the blanket up from bits of this and that
