Not-So-April Showers

Rain?  Yes, we're still getting that.  But more than rain…a baby shower!!  

This past Saturday, there was a baby shower for my DIL in our hometown in Ohio.  Unfortunately, I could not arrange to be there, but I sent a couple of knitted items up and can now share them with you!

You’ll remember when my son and DIL first told me about the baby, it was this past Christmas and they did so by giving me a cup that made the announcement stuffed with a skein of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino.  So I used it plus a little more to make this:

Pattern is Welcome to the Flock by Julia Farwell-Clay.  My color work still needs a lot of practice but it came out okay.

The nursery is being done in a safari/giraffe theme and so I also sent up this:

It’s a Woobie Giraffe by Kris Carlson.  This is the second woobie I’ve done and you'll remember it's inauspicious beginning, but I was very pleased with how he turned out.  Yarn used was Cascade Yarn’s Avalon, which I picked simply because they had the colors I wanted in the fiber I wanted but I was glad I did - it turned out to be a really nice yarn which I think will hold up well.

Of course, I have a couple more things that I’ll either ship up early or take with me when I go to meet my new grand in July.  Can't wait!!

Hope you had a happy Monday!
