A couple of days ago I was talking about my worries to give gifts without offending anybody.
So, I have decided to knit for those mums (to be) who have actually been in one of my knitting classes but (so far) not for the third one who might not even know who I am.
They are both having / expecting girls so I made a little Rainbow Dress by Georgie Hallam – one of my favourite little girls dresses.
And to make it a bit more special occasiony I have used some of my Rowan Pure Life Revive, a recycled blend of cotton, silk and rayon. It is meant to be hand washed only (not great for a baby dress) but I did machine wash a swatch and not only did it turn out fine, it was actually softer than the unwashed version (which also has a bit of a funny smell to it).
I have added a lacy hem, a flower and picot cast off for the armholes.
