Pride and Prejudice and Baby Gifts...
Here, at last, are the finished baby shower gifts I mentioned last week. :) The pastel is for a girl and the brown colorway is for a boy. Both were knit from the same pattern although the brown one, which sort of looks like an acorn, has more ribbing and therefore, has a rolled-up cuff. I made these up on the fly using a decrease that made a straight line rather than a curving one to the left or right (slip two knit-wise, knit one, pass the two slipped stitches over together) and love the way they turned out. Hope the new mommas do, too, when they receive them this Sunday. :)
Miss Austen continues to amuse me...
