I went to a double baby shower yesterday and these are pictures of the gifts given. Pink items for the girl baby and blue items for the boy.

The blue cardigan set is a Knitting pure and simple pattern with Plymouth Encore worsted colorspun yarn.
The pink items are Bernat Baby stripes yarn. The blanket is "Sleepy in Seattle" from Deb Macombers Knit-Along book for "Shop on Blossom Street" and the bonnet and booties are from "Speed Knitting" by Kris Percival.

Here is one of the new babies modeling in her sleep. She was born a few days after the shower.

Each gift was bundled in a basket and given with a cute baby powder scented candle.

The candle is from a store in the Alderwood Mall in Lynnwood Wa. The store is called Vertigo. I should have noted the candle manufacturer.

Thank you all for the kind comments.:aww:

Great work! I'm sure the mommies-to-be are really appreciative.

BTW, that used to be our 'local' mall. I miss going there, and living in that area.
