Annee's Baby Shower

Warning: One photo heavy post coming up. That can only mean one thing - baby shower! Annee is the lovely lady who has helped us quite a bit. She even offered us use of the conference room at the Fort when we needed more space. She's a crafter herself and a talented photographer.

As always the baby shower had high attendance which is why there are so many photographs. First of all Annee received a pair of knitted baby trainers and a reversible blanket from myself.

Stephanie couldn't be there as she is on holiday. She did however knit a lovely baby cardigan and a baby bib. The first time most of us have seen a hand knitted baby bib. We can always trust Stephanie to come up with something unusual.

June did one of her famous baby crochet blankets which was much admired and she gave Annee some lovely baby books.

Magdalena made one of her lovely baby toys.

Helen knitted a beautiful jacket and hat. Ideal for when baby has his/her first social event.

Isabel gave one of her favourites - the hooded bath towel.

Margaret knitted two baby cardigans in cream and white with little socks to match.

Joyce knitted one of her famous heart blankets. We all love these blankets. The edges have bobbles which unfortunately you can't see in the photograph.

Roberta also wasn't there as she is away her holidays too. She knitted a lovely baby hat and an aran, two-toned jumper.

Caroline knitted this lovely red baby cardigan and matching hat. I love the colour.

Unfortunately you can't see the lovely cross stitch card that Aileen made. She also gave Annee these cute baby onesie.

Dawn gave a set of sweet little babygros. Will definitely come in handy.

These little baby boots and matching gloves were knitted by the talented Linda. I think she also gave some very useful bibs.

This cute little baby hat was knitted by Donna.

Elaine knitted one of her famous hot water bottle covers. She used snowflake yarn which is so unbelievably soft and added cute little motifs.

This stunning blanket was knitted by Alison. The striping yarn was very much admired by everyone.

Lastly, this quilt was made by the talented Isobel. This was the finish I couldn't post a photograph of after our weekend away. The back is fleece making it lovely and warm. Annee mentioned that her daughter may try to pinch it from the baby. Turns out it was baby's big brother she should have been worried about.

In case you can't tell we all love throwing a baby shower. It give us an excuse to spoil someone and make cute baby items. I think Annee had a good time too.

In case your interested our knitting group is going to be giving a demonstration between 12-3 at Hobbycraft in the Glasgow Fort. This is to celebrate National Knitting Day. I won't be there but a small group of lovely ladies will be. Also Dawn has offered to take some photographs for the day and she will be blogging about it here. Yep, you won't have to put up with me droning on for one whole post.
