A friend of mine has just become a Gt Grandmother which (after getting the ok from her) gave me the chance to cut down on the large amount of wool I have tucked away – and as one of our large chain stores had children’s clothes at give away prices I was able to tailor the colours and make several mix and match sets for the little one.
They all live in Canada and what with postage time and seasonal differences I decided it would be best to knit these in a larger size (20″/51cm), I’m going to put them in the post later in the year so they arrive close to Christmas time when Holly will be about 7 months old. They shouldn’t sit in the cupboard for too long but if she is a small baby the material is lightweight enough for Summer and Autumn wear.
The pink wool is almost the same shade as the flowers – the choice of the grey or purple pants means there are 2 different looking outfits.
To begin with this jacket was all white but looked very stark so I added the lavender stripes which seems to have softened it. And here as well the choice of grey or purple pants means there are 2 different looking outfits
I’m not going to tell how much the 4 garments cost (‘cept to say I had change for $20) plus I the wool I used was gifted – so you have to admit they do look good for a bargain don’t they!
