Handmade for Baby

One of the most astounding things about having a baby has been the generosity of friends, family and in some cases friends of my family.

We have been lucky to be given these gorgeous handmade gifts for the new addition.

Three amazing quilts from 2 long time family friends and one from an amazingly talented knitter.

An amazing group knitted blanket in Wollmeise!

A gorgeous knitted robot the pattern was not in ravelry but I did find the link to buy the pattern if anyone wants it! He has a battery pack (knitted) on his back. This is from one of my Uni friends.

The stunning rabbit (the first softie made by a knitting/spinning friend.

Also a great shawl that fits perfectly on the back of my chair from a knitting pal.

Just amazing! Love them all.

There is even more from the immediate family -sheets, nappy stackers, toys, blankets (numerous fleece ones). As I
said astounding and we are ever so grateful.

I forgot to mention the red knitted outfit from a colleagues mums neighbour (all the way from China!)

And the little purple jumper from Randomknits!

And the crocheted rug a gift from a friend of my mums!!
