My friend S. has been busy knitting and cross-stitching in preparation for a trip to visit a new grand baby. She does really beautiful work and agreed to let me show her work to you. First up is the very lovely cross stitched wall hanging celebrating the new baby.
She also made a very nice winter sweater for the new baby's big brother. I think he's about 2 1/2 years old.
Then there's the sweater for the new baby boy. Made with very high quality yarn, and beautifully knit.
She also made this very attractive centrepiece for her daughter-in-law. What a nice early Christmas present! And what a clever pattern. S. says it wasn't difficult to make. It's very crisp and that comes from the "batting" being a sheet of foam. I'm very interested to learn how that's made. She's promised to show me. There are lots of photos of these center pieces on pinterest, but I don't know what they are called. But doesn't it give you ideas?
And last, but not least a very pretty sweater for her youngest granddaughter who is just over one year old. This pretty pink yarn has a small, shiny thread wrapped around it, so it gives a very nice sparkle to this little sweater. This was knit from the top down and needed only the ends of yarn woven in to complete it.
Congratulations to S for these beautiful works. I'm celebrating her talents today!
