• Gift Ideas for the New Mum

New babies are a great reason to start knitting. They look so adorable in wool, and they have to wear a sweater it if you put it on them. They can’t rip it off the way a two year old can! When the weather turns cold there is nothing like wrapping your new bundle in wool. You know they will be warm, Vancouver rain or not. 3835047709_85a04a45f5_z

For the knitterly new mum a couple of skeins of washable yarn is a wonderful gift. 400 yards of worsted weight yarn can make a sweater for a 0-2 year old no problem. A beautiful hand dye is extra special, for that little sweater that will passed down through the years. Madelinetosh Vintage and SweetGeorgia worsted have a subtle variation in their unique kettle dyed colors.

For patterns there are really more than I can mention. Debbie Bliss Cashmerino books have many adorable little knits, Brooklyn tweed has great baby blanket patterns, 9 months of knitting has they ever adorable Gramps sweater pattern, and Jane Richmond has some cute baby accessories too. As if that weren’t enough there is also a whole binder of baby pattern leaflets to thumb through. Choose your pattern, let us help you pick out some pretty yarn to match and you’ve got yourself a little joy for under the tree.
