FO - baby layette
This is the first FO I've posted in forever!

My dh's daughter is having a baby this week (being induced tomorrow). So I made my first little layette (man, I am so bummed I wasn't a knitter when I was pregnant. I wish my boys had had little goodies like this.)

There are separate pics of each item on my blog . This is a diagonal garter stitch blanket in Rowan Soft Baby (a super-soft wool blend), Children's Cotton Hat from LMKG, Child's Placket-Neck Sweater from LMKG, Picky Pants from Little Turtle Knits, and Dreambaby Booties from, all in Bernat cottontots.

I haven't blocked the blanket yet, but otherwise it's ready to go (we'll go down and see the baby in 2 weeks). There are a couple of small wonky places in the sweater and pants, but otherwise I am crazy-happy with the set.
