Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Baby Gifts {Yarn Along}

Baby Gifts {Yarn Along}

My cousin Timothy and his wife Arlene are in the States this week. They're expecting their first baby in January!!! Of course I had to knit a baby gift for them. My mum heard that they keep their house on the cooler side, so I decided to knit wool longies. I have no clue if they plan to cloth diaper, but at least their baby will be warm. I used the kanoko pants pattern, and they loved it. Plus, I had the privilege of being the first one to give them a baby gift.




We also had my sister's baby shower on Saturday. I already knit a pair of longies for her baby, but decided to knit a baby bowl for Saundy. She LOVES photography, and I figured she could use it to take newborn pictures.  It turned out OK; I was not completely thrilled with it. Next time, I might use a different pattern or change it up a little bit.
