I have finally finished the baby set I was making for a friend:
and so I present the Lilac collection
A couple of the items are crochet, but the knit items are as follows: Blossom
from magknits made using Jaeger baby merino yarn in a purple/lilac colourway (no embroidery due to the vairgated yarn and I used 2 strands of thinner ribbon to tie it closed), Saartje's Baby Booties
made using Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino yarn in one colour (lilac)
Ribbed Baby Shrug using a pattern from the fall 2007 issue of Knit Simple:
I need to get a cream ribbon to tie this closed which I will do tomorrow. This was made using Bernat Baby Softee and is incredibly incredibly soft to the touch!
Kitty Cuddle Toy:
Made using Cottontots yarn and my own pattern with modifications to make it into a cat (previous incarnations of this pattern have been a rabbit, a bear and a gnome)
The other 2 items in the top pic are crochet - a little cloche hat and a wool soaker made to my own pattern....
More details (yarn, modifications, needle size etc) on my blog
I just hope the mamma likes lilac!
