Yellow textured blanket

A few weeks ago a friend asked if I could make her a cot blanket, after a look through my pattern folders I decided to make this one, it's made from #JamesCBrett super soft baby double knit in pale yellow. I'd just started to knit this blanket when we had a week of over 95 degrees so it was just to hot to sit and knit this blanket so I only managed a few rows each night, but finish it I did and what a beautiful blanket it turned out to be and I'm sure my friends new grandchild will have many years of cozy nights under this special gift.

Little pink cardigan

This week I knitted a pale pink cardigan using a pattern I found in the local charity shop a few months ago.

I used #Jame C Brett super soft baby double knit 100% acrylic which machine washable but not tumble dryable.

This little cardigan fits a new born 14" chest and has a round snug fit neck to keep baby warm.

It has a pretty lace panel body and a peep hole top it would be lovely over a little dress or babygro

Trouser suit

These little trousers remind me of the old fashioned pram suits your used to get many years ago before snowsuits were invented, and with the addition of a smart matching little jumper really makes a cute little set, and I have enough yarn to make a little hat to match at some point before the weather gets to cold.  

This set will for 16" chest which is an average 3 month baby.

To make these I used #Patons Fab DK, in white with random blue, grey and brown splashes of colour,  this yard is machine washable and tumble dryable always good.
