Eleanor's friend, Lucinda, had her baby last weekend, a little girl who was born on her mummy's birthday, what a perfect gift.
Eleanor came home from university yesterday for the weekend so that she can go and visit Lucinda and the baby, she's got a few gifts to take with her.
I knit these cute little socks for the new arrival, I'm not sure how long they'll fit her though as babies tend to grow so fast. I used the Knox pattern by Galt House of Yarn. They're knit in one piece, exactly like a larger pair of socks are knit with a heel flap and gusset, just fewer stitches. They only took 13 grams of yarn, they're perfect for using up oddments so I used some of the Fondant Fibre yarn in the Amazon Orchid colourway which I had leftover from my V For Valentine socks.
Lucinda sent Eleanor a photo of the baby all dressed up and waiting to leave hospital. She was wearing the All-In-One Baby Top and hat which I knit for her, it's nice to know that the little knitted gifts that I've made are being used.
