WIP: Baby’s First Chrsitmas

Any long, long, long-time blog readers out there?? I think this one will stretch even the best of your memories…

This was the baby’s first Christmas outfit that I started making for Galen’s first Christmas, three years ago now. I thought the likelihood that I would have yet another baby that’s around the right age/size come Christmas time was pretty slim (though it has happened 3 times now, and I would have considered that unlikely as well), so it was feeling like now or never on finally finishing it up.

I think this rather stretches the limits on what’s considered a work in progress. I decided that it (only very narrowly) falls into that category due to a small hole under one of the arms that needs to be closed up. And she did already wear it for Christmas Part II with my family last weekend. We tend to spend Christmas day proper in our jammies!

The yarn is Peace Fleece, though I don’t remember which colors any more. Those are green and red stripes down the lower half, in case you can’t tell. This little girl doesn’t sit still very long for pictures these days!

This is one of those pattern that I really wish I had written down as I went along. I think it turned out pretty darn cute. Oh well. Live and learn.

So, so glad to finally get this one out of my “unfinished projects” pile and see it in use!

    She's adorable in it. Wonderfully snuggly!
    I take it everyone's been feeling fine in the new digs? I'm so glad- it's wonderful to see you all settling in.

    Oh yes, super cute! My youngest daughters winter solstice dress this year was actually started as a dress for my oldest daughter 7 years ago!

    I have just enjoyed looking through your holiday photos, as well as you 2009 collages. So much beauty in them all! Such peace and beauty in your home!

    I love this little outfit!
    I may be a longer time blog reader than I thought. . .because I think I remember that little outfit.
    I've said it before and I'll say it again- Mairi looks just like Iain to me.
