Moose and Donkey = Trinity Hannah!

I've been waiting to tell you this, and finally she's arrived!

Welcome, Trinity Hannah, Baby girl (born on November 12th) of Kelly and her husband Moose!

I've been reading Kelly's blog for quite some time now, and always thought she and her husband are a lovely couple.
Back in September I sewed some bibs, and burp cloths, as well as some socks for the little one, she called Tadpole (I'm sure not any more).

Since Kelly calls her husband "Moose" I was looking for a fabric with Moose on it. I wish I could have found something nicer, but that was all I've got.

It was hard to find a fabric with a Donkey on it, and I'm still not sure this is one, but let's say it is.

This bib I made for fun. I could not resist the "I am a Canadian!" on it. :o)


Newborn socks for Kelly's Baby-1

I like the look of these socks, but I had to rip out the heel twice, and didn't think the third time would be the charm, so I just did my usual square heel. I just didn't get the heel in the pattern. I like the garter stitches down front, and back.

pattern: Garter Stripe Baby Socks by Jennifer Hoel
yarn: left over Bambino sock yarn by Sockpixie
needle: 2mm
size: newborn

Congratulations to the whole family!

What a lovely gifts! I was knitting some babyhats for a few babies but I am bored after the fourth one. So I searched for the pattern of your bibs and found it. Great idea!!
