View Full Version : Patterns for a baby girl in Cairo welcomed

05-26-2010, 01:34 PM
My daughter is pregnant, and she and her husband are being sent within the next month to Cairo, Egypt, by the Navy. He, an architect, will be building a hospital annex there.

I always had looked forward to knitting baby things, but I'm stymied by the heat of Cairo. Does anyone have any suggestions for ways to get around this? A special cotton projects, perhaps:woohoo: :woohoo: ? The baby will arrive at the end of September, and it will be a little girl - my first and only grandchild. (Yes, I'm totally excited!) Thanks so much!

Welcome to Knitting Help!

It looks like the weather in the winter can be in the 60's for a high and lower at night can be down to the upper 40's. Plenty chilly enough for sweaters. Indoor a/c can also be a time when a sweater is necessary. So I'd say some little sweaters, hats, booties in a cotton or cotton blend that'll fit in winter would be perfect!

Are you a beginner or more advanced? What type of patterns are thinking about?

Congratulations on your grandchild!

How about some knitted baby washcloths?
