Baby knit give away #1


As I have been a knitter long before I had kids, and always knit baby things for the instant gratification, there are quite a few things in my cupboard that never got worn since my babies were both too big and born in the middle of a hot Adelaide summer. Since there are no more babies planned for us, it's time to let these go. I was saving them for baby gifts when friends had babies but every time I give a hand knit as a baby gift I just don't feel it gets appreciated, or the person gets a million hand knit things from grandparents and older relatives I feel they just get tossed aside and added to the pile.


So I have decided to give them away here instead, scattered throughout the year. First up is this little cotton jumper and matching socks in lavender and blue, both 0-3m. Knitted about 5yrs ago but stored carefully and never worn. To win just leave a comment here explaining why you'd love a handknit for your baby (or friend/relative's baby). Winner to be announced on the last day of the month.

Oh what a sweet little set! Please enter me in your give away this would be perfect for my SIL bub who is due next month.

It's such a shame when all that hard work doesn't get appriciated, I have pretty much stopped making gifts for this reason, so sad!

It's gorgeous Joy. My cousin and his wife are taking temporary custody of their little 2 week old nephew on Monday and they have very little for him ATM. This would be gorgeous for him. I'd knit something but I'm a wee bit time poor ATM.

Very Cute but too small for Aden...I'll be on the look out for something bigger and boy-ish for winter! ;)

What a wonderful giveaway, too generous really.

I would love this set for my friend who has just had a prem baby boy. She always said she would love to learn to knit as she has fond memories of her gran knitting for her when she was a child.
