Patric Gilles, born March 22nd and weighing 7.0 lbs.
Here's what I have been up to creatively. I am making more baby hats to donate to a hospital. The one on the right is the one I am donating and the one on the left is a close-up of the one in the previous photo. There are so many great free patterns on the internet. The leaves are crocheted. I used the same basic pattern as the leaves on the cocoon but I just used a couple less stitches to make them a bit smaller.
This is the matinee jacket I made. Newborn size, for little Patric.
Dolores, beautiful, and you can be so proud of the little fellow. A friend of mine is also knitting "beanies" for newborns, premmies, and her niece is knitting for stillborn babies. Made with love. Greetings from JeanReplyDelete
Welcome to the world little one! What a sweetheart, Dolores. Congratulations to all! Hope everyone is doing well.ReplyDelete
What a lovely wee boy:) I love that idea of the cocoon...very sweet.ReplyDelete
Definitely a treat for Tuesday (and any other day of the week!!).ReplyDelete
He looks so sweet and warm!ReplyDelete
Absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Very precious.ReplyDelete
Cheers from Oshawa, Ontario
Gorgeous baby and knitting! I love that green, so refreshing from the usual baby blues and pinks.ReplyDelete
I'm glad you put a photo of the little guy in his cocoon. To be honest, when you posted the first picture, I didn't know what a cocoon was, and I thought you had made a terrible measuring error in making some kind of hat! Now that I know what it is, I can say that it looks great!ReplyDelete
Oh, Dolores! What a lucky lady you are! Enjoy this little man.ReplyDelete
Oh so cute, you just want to pick him up and cuddle him. Google Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, the cocoon and your grandie remind me of them.
These are so sweet and Patric is an adorably model.ReplyDelete
Love the cocoon and hat, but little Patric is the best part of this post! He is adorable!ReplyDelete
They are soooo tiny when they are 'brand new'.....ReplyDelete
He is so, so beautiful, Dolores - I love the cocoon and hat you made, how clever, the design is adorable. What a precious baby boy!!!!ReplyDelete
Congrats on your new grandson!! The hats are sweet, as is the beautiful cocoon and the sweater/jacket. Enjoy your precious little boy!ReplyDelete
