My finished items for May were a bonnet, mittens and bootees to go with the matinee jacket which I knitted in April, for a neighbour who's just had a baby girl.
You don't often see babies in knitted bonnets anymore, but I think they're so lovely.
I thought it may be too warm for a baby to wear mittens, I needn't have worried with the weather we're having.
The little bootees should keep her tootsies nice and cosy.
So this is the whole set.
They were wrapped in tissue paper and popped in a gift bag. Eleanor took them round to give her and she was really pleased with them.
I love knitting baby clothes, it's just a shame I don't know more people with babies to knit for.
Aww this set is beautiful.Its lovely to see teeny babies in knitted clothes.ReplyDelete
Awww, don't they look sweet? :o)ReplyDelete
Absolutely precious, you have a very lucky neighbor.ReplyDelete
Such a thoughtful gift... handmade, specially chosen yarn and perfect to keep the new babe cozy.ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear about the weather perhaps the delightful stuff we're having will be making its way across the ocean to you soon!
Your baby knits are beautiful, and your next door neighbour is a very lucky lady.ReplyDelete
I've also posted about some baby knitting today :0)
They're beautiful. Seeing them has brought back happy memories of knitting for my girls when they were still known as 'the bump' or ' Fred'.ReplyDelete
If I were ambitious, I would knit something for my new grand baby coming August but I just can't get back to knitting. I never tried knitting with the tiny soft yarn that is required to make something as soft and cuddly as you have made. Coo doos to you!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful set of clothes. Your neighbour's baby is very lucky :)ReplyDelete
The little baby set is beautiful Jo, it's nice to see a baby dressed in proper baby clothes instead of mini adult jeans and t-shirts.......pretty pink too.ReplyDelete
That is one lucky baby - they are beautiful. I lvoe the bonnet xReplyDelete
Thankyou for visiting my blog and commenting! I love knitted baby clothes and those that you have knitted are really pretty! The OH's mum knitted some lovely cardies and jumpers for KP when she was small and I've still got them as I couldn't part with them!
Have become a follower of your blog!
Jo - the set is gorgeous. Your youngest little neighbour is going to be really snuggly! JxReplyDelete
Hi Jo, thank you so much for your lovely comment over at mine. I am lucky that I'm close to all 3 girls, we have fun together and I have lots of shopping buddies. The little set you have knitted is lovely, I'm not surprised your neighbour was pleased and I bet that baby girl is beautiful. It must be very satisfying knitting baby clothes beauase they don't take too long. Hope you have a lovely weekend xxxReplyDelete
they look beautiful. I am always shocked at how few people put their babies in knitted jackets etc. Both of mine were always dressed in knitted stuff from my mother in law. GorgeousReplyDelete
What a lovely present you made. We have hand knitted items donated in the charity shop all the time and they sell really well.ReplyDelete
These are so beautiful, you are a very talented knitter! I am slightly in awe. What a very lucky recipient, you obviously put a lot of time and care into this gift. xReplyDelete
Beautiful knitted baby outfit.ReplyDelete
Thank you for all your lovely comments, I appreciate them all.ReplyDelete
Love From Poppy - Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment.
Scarlet - I didn't knit a thing for my two, something I really regret now. I used to knit all sorts of things when I was in my teens, then stopped knitting altogether until a couple of years ago.
June - Thank you for visiting and becoming a follower. My mother in law knitted lots of little cardigans for my two, but they didn't last very long so I haven't kept any. I bet you've got some lovey keepsakes.
These are so pretty, and so timelessly traditional.ReplyDelete
Because I design knitting patterns for baby things I have given finished items away on the blog. One pair of baby shoes ended up in Tasmania that way!
Thank you, Annie. It's a great idea to give away baby items on the blog. I love knitting baby garments but don't really know anyone with babies, so I suppose I could do that too.ReplyDelete
