Baby shower gifts

On Sunday I co-hosted a baby shower for our family’s au pair from when my kids were really little. She is a special member of our family. I have a feeling I’m going to have something for her baby on my hooks/needles from now on.

The baby bunting is from Design’s by Louise (knit in Tahki Torino Bulky), the hat is from Sublime book #617 (knit in Berroco Comfort DK), I improvised the mittens (knit in Tahki Torino Bulky), and the baby booties (knit in Rowan Calmer) are from Baby Crochet: 20 Hand-Crochet Designs for Babies 0–24 Months

I’ve got the blanket below on the needles now; I’m knitting it in Berroco Comfort DK. It’s Lion Brand’s Spiral throw. The pattern is free when you sign up for their newsletter.
