Baby garments and Ginny Giraffe!

My sister's best friend gave birth to a beautiful baby girl last Friday 31st August, she was named Daisy Eva. I wanted to make something "different" to my usual cardigans and sweaters so I decided to make a toy - I had not intended on making a 1 metre high toy though!

Daisy's mum loves giraffes and I came across this pattern in amongst some patterns Carol Hocknell had given me when I bought my Passap back in June. Ginny as I have named her has knitted up beautifully and she is knitted in Uppinghams 2 ply Lambswool - so rather special! She is SO SOFT!

I also made some baby clothes too... a baby coat knitted in 4 ply acrylic and a fairisle V neck vest knitted in my own hand dyed pure wool. Will put some photos up of these in the next few days.
