...

I'm going to be an Aunt for the first time in December.  I am so excited.  Soldier's brother's and his lovely wife are expecting a little girl!

So what is a first time prospective Aunt to do?  Knit of course.


Pattern:  Bloom by Georgie Hallam
Yarn:  Cleckheaton Merino Bambino 4ply in red
Needles:  2.75mm and 3.5mm Knitpicks Options interchangeable circulars

Because the pattern is called Bloom, I needed some flowery accents.  I knitted an i-cord and attached this leaf pattern to either end,


and added a brooch with this flower.


We saw the almost parents yesterday at a little family gathering and they loved it!  Now I know they are receptive to handknits there will be a lot of little girl patterns on my needles in the future.

Gorgeous work. I get to knit for my nieces too, it's such a nice way to fit in some girly knits occasionally.
