Something very odd has been happening on The Ridge, odd yet wonderful.
It all started a few weeks ago when I received a package in the mail. I wasn’t expecting anything and didn’t recognize the address which I thought was odd but intriging. The package was from Sarah, her letter explained that Dianna had asked her if she would like to participate in a virtual baby shower for my little Tadpole… I think my mouth was trailing on the ground at this time…. a baby shower for Tadpole???? Moose was wondering what the heck I was reading and I explained that Dianna had set up a virtual baby shower for us. We are still both amazed that someone we have never met would organize this for us, not to the readers of my blog taking the time to make something for our little Pole. Truly this is amazing!
I couldn’t not share this wonderful gift with you all, so I’ll be posting here and there about the wonderful gifts we have received from you my wonderful readers.
Like I said the first package I received was from Sarah, she made this gorgeous little hat for Tadpole.
This is a Prairie Poppins original design. According to Sarah , the cable pattern comes from an Austrian knitting book she found in a museum filled with goods from Austrian Farmhouses. I love twisted cable patterns not to mention those cute little pompom/bobbles in the corners.
I’m not sure which yarn she used, its super soft and she did say it was superwash which will be good in case Moose accidentally gets his paws on it. He’s pretty good about knit things though and knows to leave them be or ask but ya never know.
You can’t really tell the size from the pattern but I’d say this will fit a newborn or month or two old Tadpole and will be ever so cute!!!
Thanks again Sarah its perfect!
The other package I received was from Amanda and Lily of Joli House.
Amanda knit this adorable Baby Surprise Jacket for Tadpole.
It’s knit with a lovely brightly coloured sock yarn great for a boy or girl and who couldn’t love those little ladybug buttons down the front?
I also love the, what looks like applied i-cord, she used for the neck and trim, finishes it off so nicely!
This jacket is sooo adorably tiny! Would you believe I took these pictures with the jacket on a knitting needle??
Thank you Amanda and Lily I love it!
Tadpole will be a snug little newborn in this hat and jacket not to mention the most stylish little knitter baby
