Of course, someone you know having a baby means digging out the crochet hooks (I didn't have to dig too far, just down the side of the sofa cushions) and a pattern.
I picked up this super cute Annies Attic pattern for Cuddly Cocoons.
I decided to do this one..... I liked the tassel.
Mummy-To-Be chose a lovely shade of pink, called "Bright Pink", I think "Candyfloss would have been a much better name. This is Hayfields Bonus DK and comes in a lovely range of colours - it's a good washer too! (Gosh, I sounded like my Mother then!!)
If you follow my Facebook Page, you might remember me posting pictures as I went along, asking you to guess what this might be. It does look rather ominous and I got some rather strange suggestions :)
My Buddha is going to miss his cosy little hat when this set goes off to be ready for baby Daisy's arrival.
I also made her another little gift, one that I am very pleased with and cannot wait to share, but she has not seen it yet and I want it to be a complete surprise. I will show you soon, I promise.
ps: The Amazon links I've scattered throughout the page are affiliated if you click and buy I might get a few pennies, just so you know :)
