Cute Baby Crochet

dear diary,

Earlier this year my friend Jackie became a grand-mama for the first time. Sweet baby girl Tulci was born on 18 March all the way on the other side of the world in Australia.

It was hard for the brand new grand-mama not to be able to cuddle this cutie pie straight away, or indeed hug and congratulate the proud parents in person rather than just spirit. It was somewhat made easier by today’s technology of mobile phone instant picture messaging and skype and soon she was on a plane flying to Oz. As her ‘knitsister friends’ some of us knitted and crochet gifts to take along…

Mouse Comforter

and even now after 6 months we feel the urge to constantly make baby things. So when Jackie showed me this new book she had bought,

Nicki’s fabulous book

I decided I just had to make something straight away. We bought some beautifully soft Rico Baby Cotton Soft Yarn, and crochet hook at the ready I made this

and this

I hope it will safely get to Oz and Tulci will love wearing it 🙂
