View Full Version : Baby gift 'finally finished'
01-11-2008, 09:58 AM
This is for a co-worker's baby shower in about two weeks. They decided not to know the sex of the baby prior to its birth.
So, I found some soft wool 'self-striping' yarn from Japan, in a gender neutral color, to make a little hat w/ earflaps and some cute mittens on an I-cord string.
The baby will be born this spring so, I made the items to fit a 6-9 month old- so, the baby can wear the items for its first winter.http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2040/2185510434_63bd9917ca.jpg

Great job on all. I really love that colorway - it will be perfect for baby's first winter no matter what the sex is.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I took the hat/mittens to the yarn market to show the vendor that I bought the yarn from.. and they loved them. (Well, even though we don't speak the same language- I could tell that they thought the hat and mittens were cute!) :teehee:

Beautiful! I love them both.
(Another thing I need to try, but my kids will be grown up before I get around to it. LOL)
