I had a little outing with these two today:
Malina is wearing all the red handknits! From the top:
- Aviatrix Hat - knit in May 2012 from my own hand-dyed yarn
- Puerperium Cardigan - knit in May-June 2011, also hand-dyed (part of Project Spectrum)
- Saartjes Bootees - knit in July-August 2007
All have been worn by at least Junah & Ginny before her, and the booties by Addie, too!! Practically vintage...
I just looked at your projects on Ravelry to see if you have ever knit the Baby Vertebrae. You are amazingly good at putting projects on Ravelry! I am lucky to remember to take a photo before the item leaves the house. Anyway, since it appears you haven't knitted a Vertebrae, you should take a look. I knitted a baby one, a little kid one and a grownup one over a two month period this year. They are super cute and I was a little tired of knitting the same thing three times in a row!

Oh, my goodness! The little red sweetheart! It's so nice that the handknits are getting so much good wear. XOXO

I love that these handknits are being worn by your third grandchild - it's just wonderful! I'm betting she will get her own knits, too!

Hand-knit-me-downs are simply the best! XO

I love Kat's "hand-knit-me-downs" ... Malina is one lucky girl to have such a fine wardrobe! She looks great in red ... and Ali's looking surprisingly well-rested :-)

Love the little lady in red! Ali looks like she needs a break. Enjoy

You have made so many darling baby clothes and have created a wonderful legacy that will be worn by many more generations. Malina looks as cute as a bug!!
