Some of my regular readers will know that Carie and I are very good friends.
And some, as there are a fair few that read both our blogs, will know that Carie has been with child.
And some of you have probably guessed by my lack of knitting on the blog, that I have been knitting behind the scenes.
Well, Carie gave birth to a beautiful baby girl a couple of days ago and this morning was the first time I was able to go around. Hubby and I spent a lovely morning, cooing at and cuddling the baby, helping my delightful goddaughter with the intricacies of dressing bears from a wooden puzzle game and drinking much needed tea.
For the much anticipated arrival of Elma I made a baby blanket called Jack’s Giraffe’s by Linda Gavaldon which had taken my fancy and was very amused to find that Carie was knitting an Elephant blanket, (much more complicated than mine) so we were working on a similar theme.
Excuse the lighting, winter light is treacherous to photography in the UK.
And I also made a little baby outfit
Seamless Yoked Baby Sweater by Carole Barenys, both items made in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino.
The sweater is a burnt orange, and looks lovely and I managed to find a very pretty button,
which was heart shaped.
It reminds me of Christmas baubles glistening in the fire light.
Which is perfect for a Christmas baby.
