Baby Shower

It's going to be a girl named Lorien. I made a decorative name sign for her room just like I have for all my grandkids out of stuffed felt. (Click photo to enlarge.)

This is a bootie, sweater and cap I knitted for my first baby in 1965 but he (Frank) was not a girl so I've saved it for 44 years (and the births of three more sons) for a grand daughter to be. My first two grand daughters were twins and adopted at age 9 months so this set didn't work for them. It will be a shower gift for my daughter-in-law Rachel who is expecting a GIRL on Dec. 29th.

  1. Love the felt name sign, Lin, and what a beautiful sweater set. It's been waiting patiently for just the right little girl, and apparently Lorien is the one! (Lorien is a pretty name. I'd never heard it before.)

  10. Wow, Lin. That was one of our two choices for my first daughter. We were going to name her Lorien or Amaura. Cute! I'm glad you were able to finally use the adorable sweater.
