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.
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.
