You may recall the diaper bag I knit for my friend Mama J in the fall. After I had that project out of the way and still several months to go before the birth, I wanted to knit something for the bebe. So, a little teddy bear. I actually finished it while waiting in the hospital during the birth.
(Cashmere Teddy Bear from Simple Knits for Cherished Children by Erika Knight, Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino yarn).
And, since she's such a cutie:
My beautiful nieceling* is 16 hours old in this picture, 3/16/2007. My partner knit her this lovely blanket (garter stitch in an amazingly soft, plush nylon yarn) and is holding her in this picture.
* a word I made up to mean "the daughter of close friends"
