Pretty Pink

November 09, 2016

Of all the dozens of baby garments I've knit, I think I love this the most!  Gingersnap, Wee Gingersnap and the bunny will be given to a dear friend's first grandchild.  When I heard the nursery was going to decorated in pink and gray, I knew a Gingersnap would soon be in the works.  This makes the cutest baby gift ever and I am quite thrilled.

There have been so many cute Gingersnaps (and Wee ones too) on Ravelry and I'm so happy when a new one pops up.  If you are hoping for larger toddler sizes in this pattern, well, I am too!  Hold tight as it's in the works and as soon as it's ready, I'll let you know.  Until then, both the patterns are free; the one year baby size and the 18" doll size.  Links below:

I'd love to hear from you.  If you'd like to make a comment, please click here.

When you give a knitted baby garment, it's a good idea to give care instructions as well.  I highly recommend using a soft, machine washable wool or cotton for your baby gifts. These sweaters were knit in machine washable wool and the care instructions will read:  

100% wool
machine wash on gentle cycle in cool water
pat to shape and dry flat

And just between you and me, if mother puts Pure Wool Worsted in the dryer, it will survive just fine.
