Meet Olive, Megan and Jeremy’s little girl, and Anne’s granddaughter.
At 7 months, Olive already has a natural sense of style. The duck-egg blue leggings work perfectly with a loose but crisp white smock, which she’s teamed with two accessories that clinch the “modern-baby-about-town” look , an oversized cotton collar* and a handmade patchwork sunhat**. Trendy babies know that this winning fashion combo can take you through from morning mommy-and-me group to afternoon shopping trip, and is guaranteed to draw plenty of attention.

Sharon was the first to sign up for crochet lessons as soon as I posted on facebook, and she arrived on Day One clutching a pattern that just had to be tackled before anything else…for a baby booby beanie…because her daughter was 8 months pregnant. And within two hours, she had mastered everything sufficiently to have finished the nipple!
She ended up making two (left boob and right boob, maybe?) As I write this, Sharon’s grandson is just three hours old. Congratulations to all concerned!!
There are quite a few free patterns for baby booby beanies, so I’ll just include one (here) but clearly it’s a popular item. (And you know I’m biting my tongue so as not to chuck in a few puns, don’t you?! …)
Back soon x
