For a Winter Baby

 I spun some wool to make a gift for my cousin's new grandson. I spun twice as much as I needed - I have a tendency to get carried away when spinning. The wool was so beautiful that I was a bit reluctant to dye it, but cream is  not a good colour for babywear, so dye it I did. I used patterns by Alison Williams and Anke Plummer from Ravelry to knit the hat and mittens, though I made some minor changes. The hat looks a bit Cat-in-the-hatish at the  moment, but I think it will be fine once it's put on baby's head.


  1. Try it on a grapefruit! - apparently newborn hats fit a grapefruit perfectly. Lucky baby, to be wearing your hand-spun wool.

  2. baby fun! I love the clothes nice colors!

  3. It's getting colder down there Hey? And warming up here! When I was a child, I used to imagine people standing on both faces of the eath with their feet pointing towards each other.
    Lovely wool and lovely colors! Happy baby!

  4. Lovely hat and mittens, should keep the baby very warm.
