Friday

While putting the box together for the baby shower I had no idea how many things I made....

Today my sister and I took a 4 hr ride to the other side of the state, from Clearwater to Jupiter, Fl and the fog was amazing on the Turnpike.  We arrived safe and sound for our weekend visit with my daughter.  I just went through my photos to put up this post and surprised myself with how many items I have made for my new grandbaby to be.  
I knit two layette sets. One white and one yellow.

 Then I made a quilt that can be used for a tummy time floor mat or in the stroller.


Then there are the Onesies that tell the story of the babies Daddy and Bothers.

And the 'oh so soft' and beautiful chunky knit crib blanket and pillow.

There are also a few needed items that I know my girl needs since all her saved baby goods were lost on the trip back to the states from Guam.
 As I said in previous posts we still do not know the gender of the new baby so I have to wait,, do I make little dresses or little blue sweaters for the cold of Oklahoma City?
We will know in about 8 weeks.


"This post is a good "Letter K" for Jennys 
"Alphabet Thursday" I think I'm done knitting for the season!

The box will be mailed in a few weeks, just in time for the baby shower for my youngest daughter.  
In the mean time I'll enjoy my visit in Jupiter and spend some quality time with my older daughter and sister.  This is a beautiful beach town right on the Atlantic in South Florida. 

 I hope to get some photos and will post them later next week.
"Have a great weekend everyone"

What beautiful work! I was never very good at knitting, but not too bad at crocheting.

Pondside said...

You have been a busy grandma! The little cardigan set is absolutely lovely.

Sandy these are delightful and so perfect for the new grand little one! I have never had the talent for knitting and crocheting and treasure a few items I have from my long ago relatives to my kids when they were small! Sigh!

I have always wanted a knitted tea cozie for my favorite teapot!

One of these days I will budget for one and find the perfect one!

Your talent is amazing and thank you for sharing!

My son-in-law grew up in Florida and I love hearing some of the stories he tells me about traveling across the state with his dad and his grandfather the shrimp boat captain. His grandmothers house is a historical site. I love hearing about phamily!

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your loved ones! Hugs Anne
