New Arrival....

On Friday of last week one of DH's old uni mates welcomed a healthy baby girl into the world, Henrietta (Henry for short)... I have been saving a particular washcloth for an occasion such as this.....
It's called 'Baby Feet' and was such a sweet knit and I really love how the bobbles make the little tiny toes.... The pattern was a freebie from here and I used a gorgeous organic cotton from my stash in a crisp white...

I made one of these little hats for Henry too... After making one for Millie, not that long ago, and loving everything about it, I thought it would be the perfect gift to keep little baby Henry warm on this chilly weather....
The pattern was a freebie from here and the yarn I used was also another one from my stash, unlabeled but I do remember it being 100% cotton.

I've also been loving how fantastic these little bunnies are as gifts for babies.....
I made a heap of them up to gift at Easter time and after all of the great feed back on how super they were for little hands to hold on to I couldn't help but whip one up for Henry as well, not that she'll be doing much holding just yet....

Hers was in pink, of coarse, with a splash of polka dots thrown in for good measure.... *^_^*

So here's all of the Henry's treasures, ready to be wrapped and posted off tomorrow.....

Or should I say popped in my mail box for the mail man to collect some time tomorrow...

Here's hoping you had a great weekend... Take Care....

  4. What a great way to greet the birth of a new baby with all those wonderful presents. I love the washcloth, super cute toes, and the hat is just gorgeous. I see you have little labels for your knitting too. I havent used mine as yet but nearly ready to. Those bunnies look very sweet, you are so talented. I am sure that letterbox can fit an enormous amount of goodies in it.

  5. Your washcloths are really making me want to pick up my knitting needles again. They also remind me of the time in primary school that we were all supposed to knit a washcloth. Mine was hopeless, full of holes and dropped stitches. In the end my mother came to my rescue and together we managed to knit a square and hand it in. But even then, between the two of us, we only managed to score about 7 out of 10! Mum and I laughed about that for decades.

  6. Hi Jodie, how funny that our last posts are so similar, ie gifts for babies. Yours are beautiful, those little feet and that gorgeous hat. Well done. Also how funny to read through your comments only to find out something from my family history I had no idea about. Hi Writerbee. I hope you had a great day. Love Kate
