I live in what urban planners might call an 'established neighbourhood'. In everyday speak that means most of us on the courtyard are well beyond child-bearing age.
But a couple of years ago, a younger, newly-married couple moved in. Last week they had their first child. A little girl, born 7 lbs 14 oz, named Lillian Grace.
Luckily for me, I had some baby knits resting on my shelf.
Patterns for the Bonnet and Booties came from The Opinionated Knitter or Newsletter #22 if you were an early collector. The February Baby Sweater pattern came from The Knitters Almanac. Knit with Paton's Astra.
Small and delicate, just like a new born. I am sure Lillian Grace will be beautiful in them.
