Baby things and finished repair job

This week we had baby news from a nephew, and I knitted this set of hat and booties for his brand new son. The yarn is 50% cotton, 50% acrylic, and the colour is more teal than in the picture.


This set counts for one stage of the Giro knitting. Two more stages to watch and knit!

Earlier I made this nursing cushion for my daughter-in-law.


The idea came from Dolores, and the pattern from one of the links on her blog.


I made two covers, the baby fabric one has the zipper in the inner curve and this other one in the outer curve, which seems to be both easier to sew and easier to use. For some reason this cover is not as tight as the other.


Last week I finished the repair of my daughter's quilt and gave the quilt a final touch by soaking it and giving it a gentle wash in the machine. 


Here it is drying on the line in the sun. you really can't tell the new blocks from the old ones any more. 


The garden has recovered from the winter very well and we have more pearl hyacinths both is blue and in white than we had before.

  1. I like it when the garden multiplies on its own. Less work making the garden look pretty.
    Cute baby knitting and I'm glad my little list of baby things came in handy. I would call your repair job a resounding success if you can't tell the new from the old.

  5. The quilt is super !!! Love all the blue. Baby knitting also a nice blue. I hadn't heard of nursing pillows until a month ago but they sure are useful.

  9. The hat and booties look so snuggly. What a nice idea to have a shaped nursing cushion. Well done with the quilt repair. I'm not sure I would have been brave enough to do it. The flowers look so pretty. Yes Spring is really with you!
