Violet Baby Cape

This is a baby cape, made from a cardigan I was knitting when I was about 18, but abandoned- due to the size 12 needles and 3 ply wool.

I used a button that my grandmother gave me, from my uncle's pajama shirt when he was a child.

It is quite small, so I hope it fits the baby for at least a month before it goes into the hand-me-down pile!

Ladle Rat Rotten Hut

This is a hooded cape that I knitted for the baby that Steve and I are expecting in about a month!
I used a nice alpaca merino blend and started using a pattern but ended up just rubifying it with some stork fabric and making up a hood pattern as I was a bit sick of knitting garter stitch.
