This is something I actually finished back at the start of June — a welcoming gift for a friend’s new baby. I was rather late finishing it, but that wasn’t helped by the fact that the little boy arrived a month early!
I really enjoyed making this — the pattern is by Lucy from Attic24 and as with all of her patterns it was easy to follow, and easy to get into a rhythm with — nice to work on without having to think too hard. The yarn I used was Baby Cashmerino which is lovely and soft to work with and the colours just pop. When I started making it I still didn’t know if the new baby was going to be a boy or a girl, so the colours were chosen to suit either. Adding the first round of edging was about the only part that I didn’t enjoy, but once that was done the rest of the edge detail was easy.
What do you think? I was totally pleased with it — I think it is possibly one of the nicest things I’ve made, if I do say so myself.
