Baby + mum presents

A close friend gave birth three weeks ago on Saturday, but this weekend was the first time we had a chance to make the 2 hour drive to see the happy pair.

I made a matching baby set for lil’C, and another pair of Gudrun mittens for My friend.


Gudrun mittens, knit in Kampes fingering 100% wool. I amended the thumb as it turned out a little long (my friend has smaller hands than me), and cutting 3 rows worked out just fine. 

The baby set is designed by Playsweetmusic, and I got the hat pattern as a thank you gift for proofreading the English translation of the romper pattern. I bought the pattern and wool as a kit from Majas manufaktur, which also included super sweet buttons. Unfortunately my gauge didn’t work out for the button holes so these buttons are ones I bought separately.
