Hush A Bye Layette
I have finally finished the complete Baby set called Hush A Bye Baby. It took me 11 weeks to knit the entire thing but I was working with a scanned copy of a vintage 1945 pattern. Some of the folds had obliterated the words and parts of it were so faded I had to guess. Looks like I guessed right.
After messing about with the photo for an hour I'm told I don't have authority to access some page or other so if you want to see the photos: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...e-baby-layette

That's beautiful!

Check the link in my sig for photo info. I'm not sure what people are doing when it says that, but you aren't the only one.

Thanks.
I reduced the pic to 800 X 800 but then the kb was too high and when I reduced that I wasn't "allowed access". Maybe I'll try again tomorrow with a different photo.

It is truly gorgeous. I wish more new mothers would put their baby's in beautiful things like this instead of the garbage you are stuck with in the stores. You did a fabulous job missing instructions and all.

Just perfect. I'm glad you persisted with the vintage pattern. It woked out beautifully.

Those are gorgeous! I can see why the set took a while to knit, but it was worth the effort!
