The question...

Since I made the decision to work exclusively on baby's star illusion blanket I've been amazed at how quickly it started to come together. Nearing the end of the second balls of each colour and the end of the second pattern repeat a question began to form in my mind, can I actually get this done before she arrives? The race was on, which would be finished first, the blanket or the baby? Well we finally have an answer!

This is the blanket:

Blanket, note needles

This is the baby:

Note, well, baby

Yes she's finally here, she doesn't have her own hand knitted blanket yet, but she doesn't seem to care! Her name is Felicity Rose, she arrived at 12:05pm on 6th Jan, weighing in at a dainty 6lb 15oz. After having Cassie who was a round 8lb at birth Felicity seems very tiny and delicate but of course they are both perfect.

So that's another knitwear model added to the family, my beautiful girl, I wonder if she knows how cosy she's going to be?

Congratulations! She's already got loads of great headgear.

Woooooohooooo! She's gorgeous! I'm sad she couldn't be fussed to wait another 12 hours, though. We could have shared a birthday! Then again, I don't think you would have enjoyed another 12, you know, that's fine :)
