  12. Certainly needs grey! This is super cute, roll on another baby for me to knit for…( Unlikely before you ask).

    • I hope I’m never asked to make something in grey – you did so well!
      It hasn’t found a home yet – but I’m sure one of my children’s friends is sure to have a baby girl soon.


  13. p.s. I suppose there’ll have to be some grey in there somewhere 🙄
