and now, i'm utterly thrilled to heaven and back to introduce my two week old granddaughter, piper. she is already becoming familiar with two of her grandmother's passions, knitting and photograpy (i haven't told her i love to travel too, but there is time for that) :)
her first knit is this little gown. it has a drawstring bottom and buttons at the shoulders. it's from the book 'baby collection' by kelbourne woolens, the pattern is mollie. i knit much of this while she slept in my arms. baby heaven is where i'm at. it's made with 100% mill spun merino wool, dyed with madder root by camilla fiber co. gifted by a dear friend. i added antique mother of pearl buttons and a silk ribbon to gather the bottom. to keep my hands busy, to channel joy, show my love.
