There are showers inside and outside today. It’s raining. Again. Or should I say still? And I’m having a baby shower tonight for my (step)daughter-in-law, Heather. It’s a girl(!!!) and she’s due to arrive in about a month. The whole family is excited, but especially Hannah and I.
I knit the Rosebud Cardigan from Simple Knits for Cherished Babies and also the Baby Beret from Knit Baby Head and Toes. The yarn is peruvian baby cashmere from elann.com. Here they are, pictured next to the centerpiece on the dining room table.
And a close up of the sweater.
It will be more exciting when I have pictures of the mother-to-be opening the gifts – and then even more exciting still when I have pictures of the baby wearing them!
So the table is set, the chocolate trifle is made, the vanilla pound cake is glazed and the gifts are wrapped. I’ve also got fresh strawberries and ginger cookies and peanut butter cookies and two-bite brownies with raspberries and pecan pie tartlets. I hope I have enough!
Tomorrow – pictures from the rainy timeline at Strawbery Banke!
The sweater is so sweet ~ lucky mother-to-be. I’m sure the shower was a great success!
Very nice! The mother-to-be will love them.
