At the end of January one of my closest friends had a baby, this new little 'Guern' needed a very special present. And I happened to know a lovely lady called Marion in St Peter Port who hand knits Guernsey's for babies in cotton. Bingo!
And last week it was ready.
To say I was thrilled was an understatement, its adorable, if I didn't hate the word so much, I could nearly say it was so cute......
Marion's attention it detail is fabulous. The only difference to an adult one is the neckline, its a crew neck rather then the traditional straight neckline. And this is because unlike wool which would spring back a cotton straight neck would stretch out of shape. A few buttons have also been added to ease the neck over big babies heads!
I am absolutely over the moon with it and so was Mum xxx
