I have always wanted to make things for babies.
Especially after I became a mother, but then I was more concentrated on sewing clothes for my kids than knitting or crochet them something. Maybe because both my grans were alive and made all sorts of clothes for my kids I didn't go beyond the occasional winter scarf or hat.
But the spark was certainly there and it flames up once in a while, more consistently in recent years.
In the past I have made lots of blankets and baby clothes for friends and family who I know appreciate handmade gifts, but the spark was not satisfied. It wanted to grow bigger.
So I just let it have a go this year. And there IS a lot. These bandanas are actually among the last of baby clothes / accessories to be finished, but I am adding and adding more things to the collection that has significantly grown for the past 2 months and I am going to reveal it quite soon. Unless the spark consumes me all and I go nuts and the collection goes out of proportion. But until that happens, here are these granny striped bandanas. Next I am going to show you some lovely shawls...
