Christening Dress

I am intending on posting lots of pictures and descriptions of my 'not-knitted-by-me' special possessions on this blog as I've always been a huge fan of knitted things. My Mum and Dad decided to start me off with a life in knitwear - and indeed with my quest to catalogue my cherished knits - with this image of my Christening dress.

It was knitted for my by my Grandmother (Mummy's Mummy), who was a wonderful knitter. - I also have a gorgeous bedspread knitted by her which I'll show off another time!

Hi from Austria! This christening dress is so gorgeous, it's indeed a true heirloom and I can well imagine how much it means to you! It's so wonderfully done! I'm looking forward to seeing a pic of the bedspread from your Grandmother!

Thanks! She really was an incredible knitter! I'll have to work out how best to photograph the bedspread (I might ask my Dad, he'll do a better job) and post it soon!

Yay! Louise is here! Cute id icon, love the heart! I think I need to be more creative with mine (instead of using a photo - how boring?!). Look forward to seeing all your stuff!
