grandma's knitting.


My grandma has been knitting her heart out since she found out we were expecting, and it has blown me away the amount of talent she has. She didn't limit herself to clothes either, she made us blankets and toys too!
Isn't that wee bunny above so adorable? The wool is a angora blend so it is super soft. I can just see Marley dragging it around by the ears. I think my fav outfit has to be the wee All Blacks set, there's even sprigs on the booties! So sweet!















I don't know anyone my age who can knit anything more than a basic scarf, which is sad because its such a great life skill that keeps on giving. I'm going to have to learn how to do this one day. There's nothing more special than a handmade gift. Thank you Granny!

Oh my gosh she is so talented! My nana also knits but I unfortunately didn't inherit her skills, I'm hopeless! Yay it's always fun discovering other Wellington blogs :)
