Knitted Baby Clothes

My mam sent dd some baby clothes over and a number of them were hand knitted.  My mother used to knit a lot, but due to the arthritis in her hands, she can't do it anymore.  She purchased these items and they are gorgeous.  I wish I could knit.  Please excuse the lack of light in the photos the weather is very over cast and miserable today.

This is my favourite piece a gorgeous white Matinee jacket for a newborn.

 A lovely little pink knitted hat.
A cream cardigan, to fit probably 3 months on wards in cream. 
 A gorgeous lilac cardigan again from 3 months on.

Another knitted hat.

 A close up of the detail.  I have no idea how on earth they "knitted" that ribbon in amongst the wool?
 Even the top of the hat is lovely.
Then just to remind everyone this baby has British roots a t-shirt.
Just over 8 weeks to go now until we meet our little Sweet Pea.  Which reminds me, haven't heard from our little Princess and her family in a few days, must email them.  They too will be back in another four weeks or so.

Love all the outfits, especially the Matinee jacket, the sleeves look like angel's wings.
I used to do a lot of knitting when my grands were small, haven't knitted anything in quite a long time.

Gill, I love that first little sweater--I think you called it a matinee jacket. But all are adorable.

I bet you are dying to see the princess! I know I would be. It is funny, I am worn out by the time Lorelei leaves, but the minute she is gone, I miss her.

I love the bonnet. Alas both my sisters got all the knitting and crafty talents in our family. Being the youngest they did not even leave me a smidgeon. Love the "T"

I love the hand knit things, especially the white and green bonnet! Seems like everyone has been in a funk with the weather. We need to hold a baby!

Very pretty! My mom was a very good knitter too. She no longer does it though. She says she no longer has the patience.

That first little cardi is just so adorable! So cleverly made too. I would love to make something like that!
