Another baby knit for a weeny newborn

Posted on Updated on

Just showing and telling ..

I loved making this for the newborn in my extended family. It’s the third time I’ve used this pattern, Sirdar 1817.

It’s still a little big and might be for a while. Look at those rolled up sleeves – her hands are in there somewhere! And the bootees I made too – I knew they’d have growing room …

I love an easy knit sometimes. Do you have favourite baby patterns you’ve made several times?

    Oh, my goodness! How cute is that??? I would make that sweater for every baby I know. Heck, I would even have another baby just to knit one!!

      I hope so. I saw the baby’s grandad this week and he genuinely said they were well appreciated – which is lovely for me as you never know if handmade gifts are really loved by all the recipients! It has stopped me giving in the past

    Bless her – she looks just like a baby doll.
    I know what you mean about handmade gifts being appreciated. I only ever make for people now – unasked – if I am sure they will be.

      She does, I know, but she is already growing and looking less so. It’s not worth wasting your valuable time if you have an inkling the gift won’t be appreciated, a lesson learned a while ago when someone said to me in a very sarcastic voice ‘oh, lovely, anotherrrr handmade card’.
