Very First FO!!! Baby Gift Set
I am THRILLED with my very first finished object - a Baby Shower Gift Set for my nephew/niece who are having their first child this fall...I learned a lot doing it (both what I did right, and wrong and had some and and andalong the way!) It was knit with double strands of Lion Brand French Vanilla Microspun on size 7 needles (other than the booties - they were done single strand) and the sweater was knit in the round top down. Even learned magic loop for the booties! I adapted the hat/bootie patterns to include the same pattern that was in the sweater to make it more of a "set" Everything has been both machine washed and dried - VERY soft

Anyway, I would never have made it through without this site so thought I would share! Attaching pictures (first time I've done that - so hope the attach correctly). Thanks for being here! Chris

Thanks all!

The pattern for the woobie was based on the Lion Brand Bunny Blanket Buddy http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/...tml?noImages=0 I wanted it to match up with the sweater, etc., so I changed it from all garter stich to borders of 5 garter stitch with the body in stockinette. I put the fiberfill in an old knee high before stuffing the head just to be sure that little fingers wouldn't be able to pull it out between the stitches. I couldn't figure out the part of the pattern for the head (knit two pieces) so I knit that portion in the round...Chris
