Baby gift 'finally finished'
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.

The yarn was nice but.. FULL OF KNOTS! More than any yarn that I've ever used.

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