I know what Santa's littlest helper will be wearing next year!
Hi! I'm back again today to share my last knitted Christmas gift of the year, a little elf outfit for a baby that will be 6 months old next Christmas, but I'll give it to the excited new parents this Christmas. This set is from the darling baby knitting book, The Rowan Baby 4-ply Collection, which has the dearest, sweetest baby clothes ever. Most of the patterns are sized 3 mos. to 2 years. I knit this set using very soft machine washable wool in cream Rowan Super Fine Merino 4-ply and red Dragonfly Fibers Dragon Sock. I absolutely loved knitting with both yarns, loved the patterns and cannot wait to give the gift. I know I'll be knitting this again as it makes a darling baby gift, and I love giving baby gifts.
Today is a lovely rainy day, so dark and wet, so very cherished in California, and perfect for staying indoors. We ran our last Christmas errands yesterday, a chilly, sunny day, and saved out indoor chores for today--we were watching the weather report! Today my husband is going to help me clean the house, wrap the last of the presents, set the table and prep a bit for Christmas Eve's dinner of lobster bisque and salad for the 5 of us. On Christmas Day we will be at friends who are expecting 35 for a sit down dinner! It's quite a production but my friends pull it off like it was nothing. I'm bringing a smoked salmon appetizer, a potato dish, and the whipped cream for the 6 pies she is making. At least she lets her guests bring some dishes!
Dear readers, thank you so much for stopping by my little spot and for your kind comments, I treasure them all. I hope you have a peaceful and joyful Christmas, a happy Hanukkah, and a very happy New Year.
