I finished knitting this little matinee jacket for my soon to be born grandson πŸ’™β˜Ί

balls of wool and a set of needles
An intricate pattern
Making progress
5 pieces completed
They all come together
And it’s done πŸ˜ƒπŸ’™πŸ‘ΆπŸ»

6 weeks before he was born I completed the jacket. This little item was one of many little cardigans and jackets I knitted for his layette. I love knitting and it was such a joy to prepare these little items for him.

When my daughter was a baby, I knitted a full set of dress, jacket and bootees in green, using the same pattern. Continuity. I’ve still got the set in storage.

And continuing with the same pattern, I knitted a blanket for my daughter. It was meant to have been knitted while she was in labour, but as it turned out, the birth went very differently to what we anticipated and I participated in his birth right from the first contractions till he took his first breath.

And so the blanket took a tad longer than expected….like 18 months longer. But eventually it was done

And its done πŸ˜ƒ

It’s now being used for when he goes out in his pram
